The National Association of Women in Construction (NAWIC) originally began as Women in Construction of Fort Worth, Texas. Sixteen women working in the construction industry founded it in 1953. Knowing that women represented only a small fraction of the construction industry, the founders organized NAWIC to create a support network. Women in Construction of Fort Worth was so successful that it gained its national charter in 1955 and became the National Association of Women in Construction. Today, NAWIC provides its members with opportunities for professional development, education, networking, leadership training, public service and more.
CityLab is a new Transformation School that is part of the Dallas ISD Public School Choice (PSC) 2.0 initiative. CityLab is an Open Enrollment school open to ALL Dallas ISD students. The goal is to attract a diverse student body from a mix of cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds reflecting the diversity of the city itself. The goal is for the school to be centrally located to extend the classroom beyond the traditional classroom, and to allow students to use the city as a classroom. CityLab will open in the fall 2017 with 150 to 200 9th grade students– and will add 1 more grade each year until CityLab is a full 9-12 Dallas ISD high school in 2020-21.
