Diversity & Inclusion
Every year, Murphy Company partners with MCA of Eastern Missouri (MCA-EMO), UA Plumbers and Pipefitter Local 562, and the Plumbing Industry Council (PIC) to take part in the Creating Hometown Advantages Minority Participation In Our Neighborhoods (CHAMPIONS) program.
This program offers a fast track into the profession of plumbing and pipefitting with the ultimate goal of enrolling in Local 562’s five-year apprenticeship program. Since its inception, Murphy Company has been a proud supporter of this program and has hired many CHAMPIONS graduates.
There are more women in the construction industry than ever before and we strive to keep driving that statistic up! Murphy Company continues to raise awareness of all the different opportunities available to women in our company and beyond. We hope to continue to build a strong foundation for middle school, high school, and college students to help them start their careers, and show them all the different opportunities they have in this industry.
The women here at Murphy Company all have impactful and important roles in the office and on project sites – this page is to acknowledge them and share some of their stories. We hope that the advice and journey each one of them has encountered will inspire and educate other women to join the construction world.
Women in Construction Week is the chance for us to recognize and appreciate women as a growing force in the construction industry. This isn’t just a chance for us to share our experiences with each other but also an opportunity to inspire young women today to pursue a career in construction.
We will be highlighting the women here at Murphy Company and be sharing their experience in the industry.
Check back in for more events and resources that can help support you in starting/growing in this industry.
