    Yes we have women in controls positions.
    2 - Designers, estimators and programmers
    2 - IT side
    2 Technicians - install, program and service

    Our bumper stickers are - "A WOMEN'S PLACE IS IN CONTROL"

    But like any other construction related job - we are in the minority.

    Girls

    I have met several women who are in Controls. Jackie from Delta (BC), Michelle from Linc, and others that are forgettable. My experience has been mostly positive. Really no different than Guys. Just more detail oriented, and if anything, less emotional.

    I have only known one, but she wasn't in controls. She was service tech when I was in the air force. She was pretty good technical, kinda weak, and brought lots of drama.

    We have close to 30 engineers. Only one woman currently, but we have had a few more in days gone by. I have not noticed any difference in abilities, but I do enjoy having some of the sweeter gender around.

    I don't think most women can crank up the drama enough to keep up with what I have seen the men in the controls biz put out!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I currently have 8 female apprentices in my classes. 3 in construction, 5 in service.

    Good ones and bad ones! I have worked with women who could do great field tech stuff and some good engineers that are female. But the most effective women I seen in controls worked in the sales side. She has been one of the top five sales people in the past 5 or 6 years. VERY smart, and VERY good at her job and working with others. I love having women in the trade.
    enough said!
