Guam - The Center for Micronesian Empowerment in conjunction with DCK and the Guam Community College hosted a "Women in Construction" seminar today at the Mangilao campus. Acting Executive Director Michael Ghiglione says his organization helps assist Micronesians with training and employment opportunities.

This particular event drew in over 50 women interested in careers dealing with construction. He says many women have this perception that working in the construction industry is only open to men.  "I think it's really an eye opener for a lot of women today to find out that a construction career doesn't just mean intense physical labor outside in the rain. So I think we're really getting good reactions from those in attendance today," he said.

Ghiglione says the next step is to show these women how to go about taking part in training and other opportunities to get into the construction industry.
