“Women Executives in Building is an important series that reaches women in the C-suite in the built environment,” says Lakisha A. Woods, CAE, president and CEO of NIBS. “In this industry, women in the C-suite face unique challenges. As conveners, we believe it is our responsibility to bring this group together to find solutions. We are humbled and proud to receive the recognition and support of 84 Lumber Co. to continue this work.”
NIBS hosted the first annual Women Executives in Building Summit in October 2019. The goal: To gather a group of women in the C-suite to share ideas, challenges and solutions to current issues in the built environment.
Since last fall, NIBS has hosted four virtual panel discussions, covering productivity, workforce development, work/life balance, and advancing women to achieve parity in leadership.
