By National Women in Roofing (NWIR).
In January 2021, National Women in Roofing (NWIR) added a Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) Committee to its growing list of working committees. Since then, the DEI Committee has strived to highlight the diversity and success of women within the roofing industry. This November, the committee highlights the following commemorative holidays:
“How important it is for us to recognize and celebrate our heroes and she-roes!” – Maya Angelou.
We are thrilled to highlight two women who have served our great country and our industry. It is an honor to introduce Angelica Brager of the Army National Guard and Elizabeth Evans of the U.S. Army and Florida Army National Guard with our NWIR community.
All too often Veterans Day has an immediate masculine connotation, invoking images of men in battle and uniform…but it’s time for a paradigm shift…and we at NWIR are the group to start that change! This month we salute the strong, brave, valiant WOMEN who have defended our freedom and country!
Thank you Angelica and Elizabeth for leading by example and risking your safety and lives for our own.
“Create the highest, grandest vision possible for your life because you become what you believe.” – Oprah Winfrey
Huge, giant, loud shout out to all the women business owners! Let’s face it, roofing is hard work no matter your title or position – it’s a tough business. Period. But we have some amazing ladies to feature who have defied odds, worked hard, overcome gender stereotypes, and become entrepreneurs in roofing!
As Thanksgiving is a time of gratitude, we want to thank everyone for making this community what it is today – a network of connection, education, recognition and support.
We’d love to see your holiday celebrations with the hashtag #nwirthanksgiving on social media! Thank you to those whose shared their trick-or-treating, costumes and Halloween fun with the hashtag #nwirhalloween!
We encourage our NWIR community to foster our goal of diversity, equity and inclusion by taking the time to learn about these great and notable commemorations this month!
