Here is today’s WIC profile!
Carrie L. Ciliberto, Associated Subcontractors of Massachusetts, Inc.
Carrie L. Ciliberto, Esq., is CEO at the Associated Subcontractors of Massachusetts, Inc. Before moving to Boston, she was the senior director and counsel of contracts and construction law, for The Associated General Contractors of America in Washington, D.C. She also held the title of Deputy Executive Director and Counsel for ConsensusDocs, a coalition of 40 AEC organizations.
Prior to selling her law firm and moving to D.C., Ciliberto was the founder and principal of Ciliberto & Associates, LLC, a Colorado law firm practicing natural resources, real property, environmental, and land use law. Prior to her legal career, she was a marketing professional working on projects including General Motors, Blue Cross/Blue Shield, United Way, La-Z-Boy, and luxury real estate developments in the Vail Valley.
Ciliberto believes in the positive benefits of diversity and inclusion but is realistic in knowing that things won’t change overnight. “Consistent, proactive, and positive efforts to open doors and open minds will make a difference,” states Ciliberto. For example, her first speaking engagement in Massachusetts was at the US Green Building Council’s Legacy Program at Madison Park Technical Vocational High School. She and the Green Building Tech Club students discussed the many and diverse opportunities a career in the construction industry can provide.
Additionally, in 2018 ASM expanded its scholarship program to include two-year community colleges and trade schools. Through actions like these, Ciliberto intends to continue to foster “confidence and thinking outside of the box” for our NE residents, while helping to create opportunities for those who desire to join the AEC industry.
The Associated Subcontractors of Massachusetts, Inc., is a trade association representing subcontractor companies, large and small, union and open shop, building public and private projects in New England.
