Pink Hard Hatz, a female-owned construction company, is breaking down barriers
CHICAGO– According to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, women make up nearly 11% of construction workers.
It’s a statistic Sashe Ivy hopes to change.
“I was in a meeting. Once again, it was all male contractors. And I thought about how women can do that,” Ivy said.
Ivy owns Pink Hard Hatz Construction, a full service, licensed and bonded construction company.
“I always have work because I find that people, especially women and seniors, want to see a woman. They’re sick of being taken advantage of,” Ivy said.
Ivy has partnered with Chicago Women in Trades, a nonprofit dedicated to empowering women in a variety of trading careers, and hopes her efforts will have a lasting impact on women across the country.
