The House that SHE Built - providing scholarships for women in construction through a 2021 Parade Ho

The Utah Chapter of the NAHB Professional Women in Building began work last year to design and build a home that will be showcased in the 2021 Utah Valley Parade of Homes. The goal for this home is to highlight and utilize women professionals, skilled tradeswomen, and woman-owned companies for all stages of the project. The proceeds from the sale of the home following the Parade will be divided between scholarships, women-run charities, and future home projects like The House That SHE Built. In this session, we'll share the story of this project and its impact on the local community and future generations of women in building.
