Who We Are

Professional Women In Construction

New York is the founding and national chapter of PWC. It was established in 1980 by 8 women who decided that if they banded together, they could support each other in advancing their careers and businesses. This vision is at the core of what we do.

The NJ Chapter was formed in 2007 to address the unique needs of the New Jersey construction industry and provide local opportunities to the Professional Women who live and work in this great state. As an active networking source, our chapter provides valuable information and ideas to our members through events, education, and mentorship. Our signature events include our annual Women of Achievement Luncheon, a golf clinic and Day at the Races. Throughout the year we also have Connect and Learn breakfast seminars and networking dinner meetings. These events provide the latest in industry topics and countless business development opportunities. As our chapter continues to grow our vision of “Women Helping Other Women” in the construction world continues to flourish.

Men are welcome and key to what we do because we know, together we are better.

We do this through three initiatives:

Informative industry programming

Exclusive member resources, leadership & networking opportunities

Scholarship & mentorship program
