Women in Construction Spotlight Series Featuring Michelle Luce-Gilson

Females encompass only 14 percent of the construction industry’s employees. However, that number is only expected to grow as women take on more engineering and leadership roles.

What is it like to work in the construction industry as a female leader, and how can other women make a career in this industry?

On today’s episode of the VCC Women in Construction Spotlight Series, Host Michelle Dawn Mooney speaks with Michelle Luce-Gilson, Corporate Scheduler at VCC Construction, Project Scheduler for VCC, to discuss Luce-Gilson’s responsibilities, her experience as a female in the construction industry, and how the industry has changed throughout her career.

Mooney and Luce-Gilson also discussed…

  1. What Luce-Gilson does on a day-to-day basis as a scheduler and her experience as a female in a male-dominated industry
  2. What changes Luce-Gilson has noticed over the years in the construction industry
  3. Advice for women who may be hesitant about working in construction

How can females figure out the best role for them in the construction industry? “Do something you really love in construction. To get started, do anything in construction and try to figure out where your place is and then go with it,” Luce-Gilson stated. “The industry offers a lot—a really wide array of roles. It’s not just the operations side where there’s people physically building things,” she added.

Michelle Luce-Gilson is Corporate Scheduler at VCC Construction and has previously worked in roles such as Scheduling Manager and Senior Project Scheduler at VCC. Luce-Gilson has over 30 years of experience in the construction industry and is a certified Planning and Scheduling Professional (PSP) per the AACE International.
