Celebrating Women’s History Month: Women in Construction
Women in the built environment are trailblazers. Many times, they were the only woman in their department, on the leadership team, or the first woman to lead their organization. While you may not have been the first woman, everyone has a unique story to tell. “Being the only” means that everyone has a narrative about their climb to success. Join the Women Executives in Building on August 31, for an opportunity to share your personal journey and learn from the paths of others.
Who Should Attend: All female C-Suite executives in the building industry, from association executives to corporate leaders and women–owned and operated businesses.

During our networking session at Building Innovation 2021, many leaders spoke about being their authentic self. How much of yourself can you really share with others at work? For example, if you’re kindhearted, does this come through, or do you pretend to be someone else at work for appearances sake? Does your wardrobe reflect your true self? Is it OK to have a bad day?
Women in the built environment sometimes wear many hats. During this session, we’ll break down some of these walls and talk about authenticity.Virtual Meeting

Women in the built environment are daring the rest of us to confront stereotypes that lead to harmful hiring practices and personnel policies that reinforce barriers of the past and continue to hold women back. These groundbreakers defy the odds in the male-dominated industries that support the built environment, and they must be aligned to increase awareness and diversity, particularly for young women who may be considering careers in the AECO industry.
In this edition of the Women’s Leadership Forum, the National Institute of Building Sciences will convene female leaders from all sectors of the built environment to a one-day event. Here, we will share successes, challenges, network, and equip females in the built environment with actionable strategies to overcome the hurdles women often face in the workplace, and specifically in the building industry. NIBS will provide the platform.
Women in the industry: Come ready to join forces and empower each other, drive results, and inspire change focused on diversifying the workforce.
This event will be filled with immersive learning for female leaders in the built environment, networking opportunities, facilitated panel discussions, and keynotes.
This event is invite-only. Please contact Jennifer Hitzke at Jhitzke@nibs.org if you're interested in attendingWashington, DC
