NWIR is a national organization that is dedicated to educating and empowering women in the industry. In a justification letter written by NWIR members, they share the importance of attending NWIR Day in addition to the valuable role NWIR plays in the industry. They write, “Women play an important role in the growth and success of the roofing industry. The National Women in Roofing (NWIR) organization was created to support and advance the careers of women roofing professionals from the rooftop to the boardroom through mentoring, networking, education and recruitment.
The first NWIR Day took place in New Orleans, last year it was hosted in Nashville, and this year, Dallas, Texas is the destination. This event is a great way to network with other professionals, learn new techniques and strategies, and celebrate the growth and professionalism of women in the roofing industry.
