Jean has devoted her legal career to the construction industry and saw early on a gap in the Chicago market with respect to opportunities for women in the industry to connect. She had a vision of an organization that was inclusive across the architecture, engineering and construction spaces and that would formalize networking opportunities for women in those fields and related industries. When she discovered Professional Women in Construction, she knew it was a perfect fit. Jean reached out to her industry contacts to discuss starting a Chicago chapter, and their enthusiasm confirmed that there was a need for this organization in Chicago and a desire on the part of both women and men to support the advancement of women in the AEC industries. In just a few short months, the Chicago Chapter of Professional Women in Construction was born and is led by a dynamic, diverse group of women who share the same vision as Jean. Jean is incredibly thankful for her Board of Directors and founding members, without whom this endeavor would not be possible.
