RICHMOND, Calif. - March 20, 2024 - PRLog -- The Rosie the Riveter Trust is pleased to announce the start of the 2024 cycle of the Rosie the Riveter Certification Awards. The distinguished awards celebrate construction companies that are leading the way in gender equity within California's trades. In the past, the program has recognized industry trailblazers such as Skanska-USA, Nova Group Inc., and Teichert.

The Awards are organized by a consortium of construction industry advocates including Rosie the Riveter Trust, Tradeswomen Inc., Stanford Land Buildings & Real Estate Black Advisory Committee, Rising Sun Center for Opportunity, and Construction Trades Workforce Initiative (CTWI). The Department of Labor Women's Bureau, Office of Apprenticeship, and Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs serve as program advisors.

The Awards serve as a seal of approval for construction workplaces that demonstrate best practices in gender equity. Companies have the opportunity to be awarded by level of certification based on metrics met in the following categories:

● Gender equity hiring directives and incentives
● Retention of women who are field employees
● Workplace environment
● Health benefits and family leave support

Sarah Pritchard, Executive Director of Rosie the Riveter Trust, emphasizes the importance of this moment: "With women comprising only 3% of the trades workforce nationally, and California poised for significant infrastructure growth, the time is now to ensure women's equitable participation and advancement in these critical roles."

Juan Calderon, Director of Stakeholders Relations at Construction Trades Workforce Initiative, states, "The Rosie Certification Awards are pivotal for setting industry benchmarks in gender equity, offering companies a way to distinguish themselves in a competitive market."

The award application window for 2024 is open as of March 21 and closes August 2. For details on how to apply, visit our website or contact Amanda Sargisson at

The launch of the award cycle coincides with Women's History Month and Rosie the Riveter Day, March 21, 2024. The Rosie the Riveter Trust will host a range of activities during Riviter Days 2024  including surprise guests, the Rosie Roll Call, collaborations, and more through Sunday, March 23, 2024.

Lead Organization, Rosie the Riveter Trust
