Almost one year ago today, a group of female business leaders in the construction, real estate and design industries came together for an insightful and engaging panel discussion during Women in Construction Week. Now, the “band is back” to discuss what has changed in their lives since they last met, implications of COVID-19 on the female workforce, advice for women in male-dominated fields, and much more.

The Band is Back; One Year Later
Date: Tuesday, March 9, 2021
Time: 9am – 10am
