CAPA Hosted WofA All Member Luncheon
On May 17, 2019, the Colorado Asphalt Pavement Association hosted a luncheon for CAPA Members and agency partners to discuss starting a Colorado chapter of WofA. The response of the women and men who attended was very positive. Numerous potential activities on how to recruit, support, and help in the advancement of women in the industry were discussed. They hope to kick off an official WofA Colorado Chapter once the details at the national level are finalized later this summer.
Successful Second WofA Event Hosted by APAI!
On May 16, 2019, Asphalt Pavement Association of Indiana hosted 40 women from Indiana, Michigan, Illinois, and Ohio at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Milestone Contractors generously donated the use of their suite for the event. In addition to networking with other women in the industry and being inspired by the keynote speaker Julie Kratz, who focused on engaging men as allies, the attendees also got the opportunity to have a photo opportunity with three-time Indy 500 winner Helio Castroneves, get up close and personal with Indy 500 divers and pit crews with pit and garage passes, and kiss the famous Yard of Bricks. Some even rode around the 2.5 mile track at over 115 mph!
