CertainTeed Becomes Gold Sponsor for National Women in Roofing
(RALEIGH, N.C.) — CertainTeed, a leading North American brand of building products, is pleased to announce its commitment as a Gold level sponsor of National Women in Roofing (NWiR). NWiR is a volunteer-based organization that supports the careers of women roofing professionals and focuses on connecting and empowering women so they can promote change and improve best practices within the roofing industry.
“Through recruiting, networking, educating and mentoring women in roofing, NWiR is making valuable strides to further strengthen our industry,” said Barb McDonough, general manager of CertainTeed Commercial Roofing. “Not only does the organization shine visibility on new opportunities for women, it also champions the accomplishments and dedication of those already established in the industry. This is why CertainTeed is proud to support NWiR as a Gold level sponsor.”
Sponsorships serve a critical role for NWiR, as they support the organization as a whole and fund critical program initiatives. In addition to its Gold level sponsorship, CertainTeed is also collaborating with NWiR to establish a Greater Philadelphia Chapter in early 2020, which will serve as a vehicle for members to connect regularly to exchange ideas, attend educational events and develop relationships to advance women within the roofing profession.
“We at NWiR are proud to be sponsored by CertainTeed,” said NWiR Immediate Past Chair Shari Carlozzi. “This sponsorship is so important for us because it allows women to network with others in the roofing profession while forming bonds that can lead to greater opportunities for women and the industry as a whole.”
