The Professional Women in Construction Connecticut Chapter (PWC CT) has been providing programming that presents the very latest in current industry topics, as well as providing exceptional networking and business development opportunities for AEC industry professionals, since it was chartered in 2005. Members of PWC CT represent all major disciplines within the AEC industry, and are drawn from Connecticut, Rhode Island and Massachusetts.
As an organization founded to support women in construction, PWC CT offers several opportunities to promote and further their advancement. PWC CT’s board and committee members are primarily women. For all programs, women are selected as panelists and to serve as moderator when available, and they recognize the success, professionalism and career growth of their female colleagues through an awards program. The annual awards program honors women in four categories: Women of Achievement, Rising Star, Excellence in Mentorship, and Chapter Volunteer of the Year.
PWC CT’s scholarship and mentorship programs are open to both men and women, however they also encourage women to pursue construction careers. The scholarship program provides financial support to students pursuing AEC-related fields of study. The mentorship program pairs students with established professionals who provide guidance and help support students’ developing careers.
PWC CT encourages you to join their community, get involved on a committee, or attend an upcoming program. The next panel program, “Commercial Real Estate – A sector in Transition,” will be held virtually on April 6 at 5:30 p.m. To register or for more information, visit https://connecticut.pwcusa.org/.
