Women Executives in Building Symposium

May 24, 2023   |   10:00 AM – 5:30 PM ET
Washington, DC

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.
