Mainebiz features UMaine construction engineering graduate Stickney

In an article about Maine women working in construction, Mainebiz interviewed Kayla Stickney, project resident engineer at the Maine Department of Transportation who graduated with a degree in construction management technology from the University of Maine. “I am still one of the only women in the room, if not the only one. I have met a lot of people in the industry, so I am much more familiar with the people at the meetings, and I know what to expect. … I think that more women would be interested in pursuing a career in construction if it wasn’t stereotyped as a male industry. I want women to know that there are a lot of opportunities for them in this industry, and if they have any interest at all, to go for it,” Stickney said.
