A women-owned construction company in Chicago wants to get more women into the workforce

CHICAGO — Women make up nearly 11% of construction workers, according to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics. Chicago native Sashe Ivy hopes to diversify that field in Chicago.

“I was in a meeting. Once again, it was all male contractors. And I thought about how women can do that,” Ivy said.

Ivy owns the construction company Pink Hard Hatz Construction. Pink Hard Hatz Construction is a full service, licensed and bonded construction company.

“I always have work because I find that people, especially women and seniors, want to see a woman. They’re sick of being taken advantage of,” Ivy said.

Ivy has partnered with the non-profit organization Chicago Women in Trades, which helps women learn a variety of trades. The founder said her goal is for Pink Hard Hatz Construction to have a presence in all 50 states.
