The National Center for Construction Education and Research (NCCER) and the National Association of Women in Construction (NAWIC) will host the second annual Women’s Leadership Academy on Oct. 25-28, 2008, at Clemson University in Clemson, S.C.


The Women’s Leadership Academy provides women with the opportunity to elevate their careers and their management and leadership roles within their company and the construction industry. It targets business owners, education directors, office managers, training coordinators, or anyone interested in learning how to be a more effective leader. It consists of three days of intense training sessions covering such topics as leadership styles, negotiating techniques, time management, productivity, and conflict resolution. Participants also receive lasting network opportunities by sharing their experiences with peers from around the nation.


Academy tuition is $1,295 and includes lodging, all meals, course materials, transportation, and activities.

Upon completion of the academy, participants will receive continuing education units from Clemson University and may receive industry-recognized credentials from NCCER’s National Registry.
