Women In Construction Forum

On Thursday, March 23, join the construction industry's Builders & Shakers for an evening focused on career advancement and personal journeys, followed by cocktails and networking.

Inspired by the theme for this year’s International Women’s Day, #BeBoldForChange, Women In Construction Forum aims to support women in all areas of the construction industry. Experts will discuss their lives, career paths, and how we can work together to create a more inclusive environment in the workforce.

  • Tracy Young, co-founder and CEO at PlanGrid, the leader in construction software for the field, where she oversees the corporate direction and strategy of the company.
  • Whitney Walter, Vice President, Layton Construction. In 2016, Whitney was recognized as a Silicon Valley Woman of Influence, and has just been named one of this month’s ENR Top 20 Under 40.
  • Susan Rozakis, Project Executive Lead, leading Google's Bay Area Design & Construction project executive team.
  • Jennifer Lauritzen, Project Executive at Swinerton Builders Healthcare, currently working on the Stanford Hospital project.
