West Michigan Woman Interview

West Michigan Construction Institute’s president – Jen Schottke – is passionate about reaching students of all backgrounds. 

She recently sat down with West Michigan Woman news outlet to discuss the recent trends we’ve been seeing about women’s roles in construction careers. A major goal being the challenge of the long-held notion that the construction industry is only for men. Because diversifying the labor force across gender lines is a win for all. Not only does it provide great opportunities for women, it will help us fulfill the widening talent gap in the industry.
