The new children’s book aims to bridge the gap of the skilled labor shortage by educating and exposing children to STEAM and construction careers and elevating women in the industry. The book is inspired by the team of real women who came together from around the country to build a one-of-a-kind home in Utah.
The House That She Built is only the beginning of inspiring diversity and inclusion for future generations of the skilled workforce for the housing industry. With this book, there is the opportunity to demonstrate the impact that women can have on housing and develop the programs and education to make it happen. Proceeds from the book will support skilled workforce development and diversity and inclusion in the construction industry.
