Women in Construction: Elisa Griffith, Service Operations Support Specialist

WIC Week™, or Women in Construction Week™, celebrates and promotes the role of women in the construction industry and takes place during the first full week in March every year.  It is a time to highlight all the great initiatives and work of women within the industry. Likewise, it is a time that brings attention to opportunities that are available to women in construction. This year’s theme, ‘Keys to the Future’, celebrates the strength and knowledge of women and the vital role they play in shaping the future of the construction industry.

We are proud to feature and spotlight the women who are part of the Plateau team.

  • How long you’ve been at Plateau? July 16, 2024, will be 6 years.
  • Why did you choose this career/industry? This industry somehow chose me. I started out working in this industry over twenty-six years ago. I can relate to the people who make it happen on the equipment side of things. I have personally witnessed the day-to-day challenges, along with the many rewards that accompany hard work and dedication.
  • What do you enjoy most of your job/industry? The people I have met along the way.  I am blessed to have met and known some of the most genuine, hardworking, salt-of-the-earth kind of people.
  • What is your advice for other women in the industry or wanting to get into the industry? In my opinion, there’s no force more powerful than a woman determined to achieve her goals. Psalms 46:5
