Social Media Takeover
Be an influencer and join us in a social media takeover during PWB Week, Sept. 12-16. Engage with us on social media platforms Instagram, Facebook and LinkedIn and use the hashtags #PWBProud and #PWBWeek. Post from your personal social media account or within social groups/pages that you are a member of that support women in residential construction. Repost blogs, share events at your PWB Council/HBA, or share personal stories about women who are making an impact in the field.
By posting, you will cross-promote the week and increase awareness that women play an important role in the success of home building.
And, for your posting enthusiasm, our exclusive PWB Week sponsor Lowe’s Pro will give the top five social media posters who use #PWBProud and #PWBWeek the most a $50 gift card.
