    Women comprise 47 percent of the US workforce and comprise only a small percentage of leadership roles within the AEC industry. In the age of #MeToo and Time’s Up, many have said the Future Is Women. But, how do we get there? This dynamic panel of leaders in the design and construction industry will challenge us to not just think about our career paths, training and development, but to pay equity, develop a work-life balance, and explore how and where we can grow as professionals.

    Our panelists' unique career stories will explore obstacles, challenges and how they grew their leadership skills within the industry.
