PWB Conference

The Power of __________

Come network and learn with fellow Professional Women in Building members to embrace your inner powers. Be inspired by our keynote speaker, Stephanie Dailey. She will be sharing her story, how she builds her brand, and her initiatives to inspire girls to pursue careers in STEM & construction. Then our featured speaker, Melissa Reaves of Story Fruition, will help attendees understand how to translate their powers and experiences into a powerful story with impact. This is an event not to be missed!

For more than thirteen years, the Professional Women in Building (PWB) Council has recognized, honored, and supported women in the construction trades, opening new pathways toward continued innovation. Please attend our annual conference and help us celebrate leaders making a difference in our communities, with countless educational, networking, and mentorship opportunities.

We love to network! Networking starts at 10 a.m. when doors open, so be on time to get a full chance to catch up.
