Who are the Women of Asphalt? Women of Asphalt is a national coalition which supports women in all aspects of the asphalt industry through mentoring, education, and advocacy, and by encouraging women to seek careers in the asphalt industry. What is the story behind the Women of Asphalt? Engineering, science and construction have historically been male-dominated industries. Over the past few years, there’s been an increase in the number of women moving Rocky Mountain Asphalt Conference features the “Women of Asphalt” into these fields. The asphalt industry is no exception. Although women do not represent a majority, they are beginning to represent more positions across the industry, from the field to the C-suite. In her role as National Director for the Asphalt Pavement Alliance, Amy Miller works with a variety of people within the industry. In 2017, she discussed the idea of the Women of Asphalt with several other industry ladies, who were all extremely receptive and felt that this could help our industry in a variety of ways – encouragement, support, workforce development and education. With that in mind, they formed Women of Asphalt, a coalition to lead and inspire women in the asphalt industry.
