New Bedford-based contracting company, ProGroup Contracting, is raising industry standards with a focus on inclusion and gender equality in the workplace.

ProGroup Contracting's team of Women in Construction

At ProGroup, that sentiment is quite the opposite. I have multiple women in leadership and management roles, many who have worked here from 5-20 years.

According to a 2016 study, it is recorded that women make up less than 10% of the construction industry in the United States. Compared to the national average of 9.1%, ProGroup’s employee roster is almost 50% female with 17 women and 18 men.

“It isn’t common for women in the construction industry to progress in their career, which is evident given that the national percentage of women in the industry make up just over 9%,” says ProGroup Owner and President Dave Moura. “At ProGroup, that sentiment is quite the opposite. I have multiple women in leadership and management roles, many who have worked here from 5-20 years.”

ProGroup is proud to employ a team of some of the most highly decorated women in the industry.

Awards received include National Commercial Sales Associate of the Year, the Richard A. Perry Award for outstanding company dedication, Coordinator of the Year, Society of Engineer Certificate of Merit, Project of the Year, Crew Leader of the Year and Production Associate of the Year.

Their female team continues to display the highest standard of performance and customer service in the industry, earning awards and recognition annually and breaking barriers in traditionally male roles.
