“In the Construct program, I definitely got a ton of insight into the really wide range of tasks and roles that exist in the utility construction world that I had no idea existed before Construct. I was surprised how many opportunities there were for a woman to work in the field – I mean, actually working outside. I was drawn toward the possibilities of jobs in utility locating and different types of surveying. And without Construct, I never would have learned about the all the engineering/design-type jobs that are happening behind the scenes with any construction project – but that don’t require you to be an engineer. I was delighted to learn that my eye for detail and talent for exactness and precision were desirable traits in some positions.”

HBK also believes in developing and maintaining a diverse employee base. Starting in 2013, HBK participated in the pilot for ComEd’s CONSTRUCT Construction Jobs Educational Program, taking an active role in shaping the program with seven other ComEd partners and four local community agencies. HBK has participated in the program every year since its start, helping the program students to better understand our work in the utility industry with the goal of providing the students with better tools to gain meaningful, long-term employment. Now in its fourth year, the program has grown to over twenty participating companies, with two additional major utilities as well as additional community agencies. The program has proven very successful as a job creation vehicle, yielding better than a seventy percent success rate in student hires in 2015.

    “I am a very proud lifetime Chicagoan who believes in the awesome potential of this city and all that it has to offer, but I also recognize the immense challenges that many of our young citizens face in their daily lives as they dream of brighter futures. I believe that it is our duty as a community to do all we can to care for and provide opportunity for our future leaders in any capacity we can. As a volunteer at Mercy Home, I have seen the incredible accomplishments achieved when a young person is given the encouragement and tools they need to succeed. It gives me great hope for the future of the city I love.”
