Taylor Morrison Spotlights Outstanding Female Employees for Women in Construction Week

Women impact nearly every aspect of business at home builder giant Taylor Morrison, whether it be on the jobsite or in the boardroom. The company, led by Chairman and CEO Sheryl Palmer, strives to rewrite the narrative around gender equality in the construction industry. Taylor Morrison’s workforce is split nearly equally: 53% men and 47% women. The company’s devotion to gender equality has granted them inclusion in Bloomberg’s Gender-Equality Index for three straight years. To celebrate Women in Construction Week, Taylor Morrison puts the spotlight on some of its outstanding women employees.

After spending a year and a half as a purchasing agent at Taylor Morrison, Ali Rice was craving a new challenge that would allow her to be in the center of the build process. Seeing the homebuilder's commitment to gender equality, she felt comfortable stepping into a new role as an assistant superintendent in Denver, Colorado, and feels supported as she establishes herself in construction.

"To normalize women in the field and to turn it into something where no one blinks an eye are steps you have to be willing to take—and Taylor Morrison is leading the charge," said Rice.

Doubling as a Customer Care Manager and a Division Construction Coordinator Karin DeCicco closed nearly 40 homes in 2020, running home inspection and walkthrough punch lists as well as managing warranties and educating homeowners on maintenance and homeownership. With two young sons, who might step into the industry one day, Karin is raising them to see the construction field in a different light, with both men and women on a jobsite.
