In a traditionally underrepresented industry, women are more than ever vital in leadership roles in architecture, engineering, and construction. A recent study by McKinsey indicated that companies ranking in the top quartile of executive-board diversity were 35% more likely to outperform others financially and the Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that women in construction earn an average of 95.7% of what men make—an 18% pay bump compared to other industries. Join the AIA/GBCA Joint Committee for an event in conjunction with the Construction Owners Association of America (COAA) exploring women in leadership in A.E.C. Learn how these leaders got to where they are today, why they chose the A.E.C. industry, and where they see A.E.C. going in the future.
