We support, advance, and connect women while promoting diversity within the architecture, engineering, construction, and related industries.

Who We Are

PWC is a national nonprofit organization founded in 1980 to support, advance, and connect women in the architecture, engineering, construction, and related fields. Fourteen industry leaders in Chicago came together in 2021 to extend that mission to the first midwestern chapter. Our vision is implemented by actively engaging our members in business and career development, educational and networking events as well as leadership opportunities on member-driven committees. We welcome all genders in our membership - together we can do more to support women in our industry!
