The construction industry in the United States is no longer a boy’s club. The Bureau of Labor Statistics published recent reports that tell us that women account for 9.9% of the construction workforce industry. In order to continue to inspire women to enter new and exciting careers in the construction industry, an organization called Women in Construction USA is thrilled to introduce their September 2019 conference. This event will be the very first of its kind within the United States. 

A similar event originally inspired the organizers of the Women in Construction USA Conference in London, England that ran for two years. The event was deemed a great success, speaking to a large group of women in the construction industry from companies all over Europe. After that event sold out, the group decided to host a similar event in the USA. The conference boasts of a unique selling proposition — providing practical tools to tackle the hurdles of being a woman in the modern construction industry. 

The event is slated to take place the Hyatt Regency in San Francisco, California on September 18-19, 2019. There will be two days of events including over 40 different learning sessions, 50 different speakers for the over 400 expected attendees to the conference. The panel of speakers includes a wide variety of female construction industry titans ranging from company vice presidents of international construction companies to leaders in engineering, directors, and much more.
