Build Me Up Podcast
Celebrating Women in Construction with Carol and Sarah Sende
The Build Me Up podcast is celebrating Women in Construction Week with Carol and Sarah Sende. Women make up just under 10 percent of the construction industry workforce across trades, sales and management positions. Throughout the month of March, KA’s Build Me Up podcast will be profiling women who have been innovators, change makers and trailblazers in the industry.
We kick things off with Carol and Sarah Sende. Project superintendent Carol Sende has been with Kraus-Anderson for nearly 35 years and has managed over 50 full-cycle projects, including over $50 million of housing projects. Carol’s daughter, Sarah Sende, is following in her footsteps. Sarah is currently working as a carpentry apprentice at KA, with aspirations to work her way up to be a superintendent.
We sat down with Carol and Sarah to talk about their careers, how they got into the industry, and what it’s like to be one of the only women on a jobsite.
