Holcim US Hosts Transportation and Construction GIRL (TCG) in Denver, Colorado
For the past two years, our Holcim team based out of the Denver area has served as a gold sponsor of Transportation and Construction GIRL (TCG), which includes hosting one day for their annual Career Week for GIRLs program as well as attending Career Day, which takes place later in the year. Career Week for GIRLs gives young women, ages 13 to 20, the opportunity to take a look at our industry, receive hands-on learning and education them on the many career paths within the construction and transportation industries. Being a part of this valuable event helps open up the girls’ minds about the possibilities they have available to them after high school.
On Tuesday, June 6, our Golden, Colorado team welcomed and hosted a group of 10 young women to our Denver facilities and sites. There they were greeted by the Senior Vice President & General Manager, Kevin Peart, and were given a general overview on a wide range of topics, such as safety, sustainability goals, and aggregates.
Coordinator of this event and Senior Commercial Development Analyst, Dana Jenick ensured that the girls were given a tour of the Morrison quarry in its entirety. The girls also received special swag from TCG such as pink hard hats, as seen in the photo. At the day’s end, all of the girls commented on their favorite part of the day; for a couple of them, the tour of the quarry and seeing the overall operations was their favorite.
“The best part about today was being able to actually go into an active quarry that was being excavated and seeing all of the different mechanics, parts, and systems that go into excavating such a large project and being able to see what that looks like in action,” one young lady shared.
