As a woman, it can be challenging to gain the respect you deserve if you are working in a male-dominate industry and now one knows that better than today’s guest.
Elem Rinomato’s journey into the construction industry began at the tender age of 8 when she asked her father the simple question, “Daddy, what is drywall?” Today, she is the president of Torino Drywall, a company that builds wall and ceiling system for high-rise and low-rise residential and commercial construction projects as well as the owner of Country Homes – a residential home construction company for the Greater Toronto Area. She is also the Vice President of the Rinomato group of commercial companies, the Vice President of the Board of Directors of the Interior Systems Contractors Association, and a board member of the local apprenticeship committee.
Elem is an incredibly fierce feminine leader in the construction industry, and today, she joins me on the show to share her story. She explains what it was like to be the only woman in the boardroom and how she overcame gender bias in a male-dominated business world.
“At the end of the day, one of the only things you have in life is the ability to make your own decisions. If you don’t voice your opinion, if you don’t say how you really feel, you become guilty of letting other people make choices for you.” – Elem Rinomato
