Ep.183: The Importance of Gender Inclusion with Emma Kraft
Happy Women in Construction week!
We welcome guest Emma Kraft to the show to learn about the struggles of bridging the gap in a male dominated field as both a woman, and a daughter.
Emma Kraft is the Business Operations Manager at Kraft Custom Construction, Inc., located in Salem, Oregon. The company was started by Emma’s father, Robert Kraft, in 1982.
