In this week’s TCR Express, Daily Commercial News and Journal of Commerce editor Lindsey Cole joins digital media editor Warren Frey for a look at what we’re covering as we head towards International Women’s Day on March 8.
On March 8 we’ll have columns from industry stakeholders about female construction success stories along with an examination of the challenges of being a woman in the sector, a preview story has already been posted by staff writer Russell Hixson about the BC Centre for Women in The Trades, who will hold a virtual conference on International Women’s Day, and several other deep dives on the topic of women in construction.
We also have an excerpt from an interview with Bridgit co-founder and CEO Mallorie Brodie, who spoke to us about a recent partnership Bridgit announced with U.S. construction giant Skanska USA Building. The Ontario-based firm will roll out their Bridgit Bench software platform to implement workforce planning, resource management, pursuit tracking and forecasting together for Skanska’s building operations offices. Warren will also have a story about the agreement between Skanska and Bridgit soon, so keep an eye on the DCN and JOC websites, and make sure to stay tuned to our regular podcast this Friday and check us out on Twitter!
