“Women in Concrete” Networking Event

During the 2016 Virginia Ready Mixed Concrete Association conference, TITAN USA used the opportunity to host the first ever “Women in Concrete” networking event on October 2, 2016. The event aspired to provide a forum to recognize and encourage women in the concrete industry. The evening’s honoree was a TITAN Virginia Ready Mix Driver, who was a finalist in the TVRM Top Gun Rodeo, also the only woman driver out of more than 80 contestants at the NRMCA Driver Competition in Nashville, TN, and one of the four women drivers in the history of the NRMCA Driving Competition. The “Women in Concrete” event attracted nearly three dozen women and some male colleagues from various areas of the concrete business. Many expressed the hope that the event take place annually. Plans are being discussed for more frequent meetings, mentoring opportunities and community outreach.
