Since the initial announcement of its partnership with the National Association of Women in Construction (NAWIC), Paxton/Patterson has been focused on implementing best practices to attract more females to construction careers.

In their most recent effort they have included the addition of a female host in the Weatherization construction trade area (CTA).

 "National Association of Women in Construction (NAWIC) is proud to have Paxton/ Patterson as a national partner and of their efforts to help more young women see the benefit of pursuing a career in the construction industry. We are working with them to help young women ‘test drive’ a construction career through their BuildingSkills learning system. We are also eager to have our local chapter members interact with schools offering BuildingSkills and to share information about NAWIC. When young women in high school see and hear from successful, professional women they gain a better perspective." DeDe Hughes Executive Vice President, NAWIC Fort Worth, Texas
