About this event

Please join us as we celebrate our 16th annual conference. This year's theme is Empowering the Next Generation.

The Women in Construction (WIC) Conference is the East Coast'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 $40,000 to the ACE program and similar organizations.

In case you need (or want) an updated headshot, look no further because the Booth for Business will be onsite taking professional headshots for anyone interested. You'll have the opportunity to email the headshots to yourself right afterwards. Yay!
