Welcome to the Women Transforming Construction Panel! This panel is comprised of female professionals from the construction industry and Autodesk who aim to promote diversity and equality in the field. They work towards breaking glass ceilings and encouraging women to pursue careers in construction. The panel includes women from various areas of the industry, such as prefabrication, general contractors, and more, who share their experiences and insights on how technology is changing the industry. Through their work, the Women Transforming Construction Panel hopes to empower women in construction and highlight the technologies that are shaping the industry.



Lisa Stine - Lisa Stine is a graduate of the University of Science and Technology, where she received a Bachelors degree in Civil Engineering. After college, she went on to spend nearly a decade in the electric utility industry, focusing heavily on the design and analysis of high‐voltage power lines and direct management of those projects, from construction to close‐out. Upon leaving the engineering world, she joined Autodesk – utilizing her background in both the sales and technical executive spaces - all the while, furthering her expertise in the landscape of engineering and construction technology.

She now has the incredible privilege of working with Autodesk construction partners in the marketing space, creating a One Team community for all Autodesk customers. She’s passionate about the many advantages in the construction space – to not only drive better business, but also to create a better world. Therefore, in addition to her work at Autodesk, Lisa is a big believer in engineering sustainability and spends a lot of her time in service efforts, typically abroad. We are very excited to have her as our moderator.

Notably, Amy was appointed by the Singapore government’s Building & Construction Authority as an international expert to advise its design and construction productivity roadmap. Her thought leadership and tenacity, leading alongside the government and industry, resulted in unprecedented change and innovation - catapulting Singapore to worldwide recognition in the Industrialized Construction and DfMA arena.

She is a forward-thinking industry-recognized innovator, continuing to work to pilot new technologies and leverage tools in new ways.

Jen’s career spans award-winning structural engineering projects, leading our industry to adopt 3D design and construction practices while serving as one of the foremost thought leaders, conference speakers and interviewees on the use of virtual construction technology to deliver better buildings more efficiently. She has been recognized among Crain’s Notable Women in Stem, BD+C’s 40 Under 40, Builtworlds Top 50 Technology Adoptions Leaders, Women in Construction by Constructech Magazine, Chicago Building Congress Future Leaders and ENR Midwest’s Top 20 Under 40.
