What is NAWIC?

​The National Association of Women in 

Construction (NAWIC) originally began as Women in Construction of Fort Worth, Texas. Sixteen women working in the construction industry founded it in 1953. Knowing that women represented only a small fraction of the construction industry, the founders organized NAWIC to create a support network. Women in Construction of Fort Worth was so successful that it gained its national charter in 1955 and became the National Association of Women in Construction. Today, NAWIC provides its members with opportunities for professional development, education, networking, leadership training, public service and more.​​

Coach, Karen Butcher is a former teacher, sales consultant, and corporate trainer whose career journey led her to coaching.  She left the corporate world to coach women and men who want to reclaim confidence and achieve their goals.  She is driven to walk alongside her clients who are stuck in a career that depletes their energy, who are weary of putting off their goals, and who long to live an adventurous life.

Karen understands challenge and obstacles; she raised two sons with hemophilia, grieved the loss of a daughter, survived a divorce and more recently learned the resiliency needed to love a child in addiction.  A turning point came in the fall of 2017 as she decided to take a "sabbatical from life."  She worked through emotional trauma and emerged with a renewed sense of purpose, self-love, and confidence.


Cost for this event is $20.
