About this event

We're celebrating our 15th year and our "Extraordinary Partners In Construction." We invite you to join us for the BEST conference yet -- It's going to be EPIC!

The Women in Construction (WIC) Conference is the Mid-Atlantic region’s premiere forum for education, professional development and networking for women in the build industry. Since 2006, the conference has provided an avenue for women to learn from senior executives and industry professionals and offers networking and mentoring opportunities to all attendees. More than 450 men and women attend the event each year. Representing every discipline, the attendees include general contractors, subcontractors, developers, architects, engineers, representatives from trade associations, nonprofits, construction consulting companies and law firms from across the U.S. and Canada. The feedback has been enthusiastic, heartfelt and consistent: The Women in Construction Conference is an incredible experience!

Prominent keynote speakers have included: Lelia Gowland, Gowland LLC; Laura Fredricks, Expert on the ASK; Tamika Tremaglio, Forensics & Investigations, Deloitte; Judge Marian Blank Horn, US Court of Federal Claims; Paul Choquette lll, President ACE Mentor program; Cathy Lanier, Chief of Police of the District of Columbia; Muriel Bowser, Mayor of Washington, D.C.; Courtney DeBord, Director of Design & Construction at U.S. GSA; Deryl McKissack, Founder, President and CEO of McKissack & McKissack; Barbara Bennett, Chief Financial Officer of the Environmental Protection Agency; and Senator Mary Landrieu of Louisiana.

A portion of the conference proceeds will be donated toward mission-aligned causes, including the ACE Mentoring Program, which provides scholarship and mentoring opportunities to high-school and college students interested in architecture, construction and engineering. Overall, WIC has donated more than $30,000 to the ACE program and similar organizations.

This year, WIC has generously approved a request to support COVID-19 vaccine delivery and distribution in the most vulnerable populations and places. As part of a "Vaccine it Forward" program, WIC will donate five dollars from every registration toward Energize the Chain, a nonprofit founded to "solve the missing link in vaccine delivery--the cold chain, and to ensure that children around the world receive uncompromised, effective, live-saving vaccines." You can learn more about the organization at https://www.energizethechain.org/donate.

Regarding COVID-19: Please note that Women In Construction is moving forward with hosting an in-person event and will comply with all Washington, DC mandates. Though we will do our best to mitigate risk, please consider your personal circumstances before purchasing a ticket. Everyone’s situation and risk tolerance is different and as we all know, there is some risk involved any time a group gathers together, especially indoors.
