Construction + Technology: One NAWIC Member’s Story of Professional Success

Construction isn’t the only industry where women represent just a fraction of the workforce.

The technology sector has been and continues to be dominated by men. In 2021, just over a quarter of computing-related jobs were held by women. Of these only 3% were held by Black women, 6% by Asian women and 2% by Hispanic women.

But women have been making inroads, and Arcoro’s Jennifer Dungan is one of them.

As the company’s Director of Product Management, she’s beaten tech industry odds and holds a leadership position in a software company. And it’s not just any software company, it’s one focused specifically on HR software for construction. To a certain extent, Jennifer’s experience parallels what women choosing a career in construction face: She didn’t have many female role models. And there was an expectation that as a woman she would be content to stay in lower-level positions.
