Constructing their futures
BY TRENT ZBICHORSKI
Like a lot of women who choose a professional career in construction management, Minnesota State University Moorhead student Elly Lehn grew up around the business.
“My dad started as a diesel mechanic at Veit and is now the executive of fleet operations,” said Lehn, a junior in MSUM’s construction management program. “I couldn’t tell you how many times I sat on my dad’s lap in a bulldozer or an excavator and loved it.” Many women are introduced to the industry this way.
In the male-dominated construction field, just 8.9 percent of women work in the industry nationwide, according to the U.S. Dept. of Labor. Most often, they are doing clerical or support work.

Nearly 150 women applied for the program. Read the rest of this entry →
