Today we are excited to shine the spotlight on Viktoria Swerbensky, our Learning and Development Manager, one of the 2023 Chapter Directors of San Francisco Bay Area’s National Association of Women in Construction. Last week we got to sit down with Tori to talk about her journey through NAWIC and how this association continues to open more doors for women in the construction industry.

Tori has always enjoyed working in construction; she found it exciting and fun but never felt like this industry was an option for her as a woman.

NAWIC’s 2023 Chapter Director

Tori joined Dome in 2001, and soon her unique curiosity and eagerness helped her succeed and grow her career from File Coordinator to Learning and Development Manager. In 2017, she joined NAWIC, and even though she wished she had joined sooner, Tori explains that she was captivated by the diversity of women in the association. “It made me realize that at the time, with the women in the industry, there were many different ways women showed up in construction. There was a network to tap into that. There was an opportunity to connect with others, and that was what I appreciate about NAWIC, this ability to connect with others”.

For more than 60 years, NAWIC has helped women take advantage of opportunities in construction. Whether you want to embark on a new career, establish a networking base, be a mentor, make a difference in your community, continue your education, or invest in great professional relationships, NAWIC offers a variety of opportunities — large and small.

Tori’s guidance and expertise help women in the industry open up to build confidence to search for new opportunities. We encourage women to expose themselves to their network and understand different perspectives from women all around the industry.

Why a focused woman’s group in today’s industry?  While the industry and climate have both definitely changed for the better for women, there is still a relevant place to provide additional networking and mentoring opportunities for women by women, particularly by those that helped shape today’s climate.
