In case you have not heard, the National Institute of Building Sciences is hosting a networking and industry summit to connect some very important people: Female executives from the nonprofit built world.
It’s happening this Friday, Oct. 4.
Dozens are planning to attend the first annual Women Executives in Building Summit.
We hope to open a can of worms that we all can be proud of: Conversations about diversity, inclusion, building, leadership -- the whole kit and caboodle.
The plan is to expand the event in 2020 to include female business owners and C-suite leaders across the built environment.
Lakisha A. Woods, CAE, President and CEO of NIBS, said the response to this year’s event already has been overwhelming.
“The messages are reinforcing that this was the right idea at the right time, and I’m thankful to my association friends, key members of my leadership network, and an incredible staff team who share my excitement,” she said.
We’ll be covering the event on social media. Follow us on @bldgsciences and LinkedIn to track the conversation.
