Okland Construction provides a broad and flexible range of construction services tailored to achieve each owner’s unique requirements. It represents clients from various industries, including commercial, federal, health care, higher education, hotel, industrial, and more.

How Okland Construction Champions Women

Okland Construction supports women with flexible and remote work options supporting family and personal obligations. The company also provides up to 12 weeks of paid maternity leave following the birth of a child or in connection with adoption or foster care. It encourages maternity leave to enable team members to care for and bond with a newborn or newly adopted or placed child. The company supports women with a transition-back-to-work program that helps new parents adjust to new routines, responsibilities, and sleep schedules. 

Women in construction management represent only 10% of the workforce. To help women overcome the challenges they face in the industry, Okland Constructionlaunched its Women in Construction Scholarship program that recognizes women’s contributions to construction.

The company also created its “Moving the Mark” women’s affinity group to connect women with resources for professional growth at the company and the broader construction industry. The group’s purpose is to broaden opportunities for networking, recruitment, mentoring, leadership, and education.

Why Supporting Women Is Important to Okland Construction

Okland Construction supports women because it understands that when women are empowered, the entire company benefits. When women are given tools and opportunities to better navigate their careers without sacrificing their personal lives, they provide innovative and energetic solutions.
