The Women in Engineering & Construction Conference will be held March 5-6, 2018 at the Hyatt Regency Denver at Colorado Convention Center 650 15th St. in Denver, CO 80202
According to the National Association of Women in Construction, 9.8 million people worked in the U.S. construction industry in 2014. Of that number, just 8.9% were women. The goal of this event is to help professionals advance their careers in a traditionally male industry by providing insight into key engineering and construction trends and skills for personal and professional development.
SBSA, Inc. has a close connection with University of Denver and is excited to feature these two guest speakers at this event:
Director, Franklin L. Burns School of Real Estate and Construction Management, Daniels College of Business at the University of Denver
Director of Electrical Engineering- Associate Principal, BCER Engineering

This conference brings together women and men across related sectors in the engineering and construction industry, leading the way on diversity and inclusion issues. Come network with top professionals in the industry regarding the most pertinent developments in engineering and construction, and discuss the challenges of diversity in a traditionally male-dominated sector. We will cover strategies for leveraging both professional development resources in addition to technical advances in engineering and construction to invoke change for diversity and inclusion.
This event will ensure both women and men are prepared in the changing environment, and leave with the tools necessary to both continue the gender conversation in a solution-focused way, and utilize new developments and trends within engineering and construction to help advance in this career despite any roadblocks.
