Data continues to show that opportunities for women and other minority to be promoted into leadership within the AEC industry are disproportional, and at times, lacking, at all levels. To ensure equity at all levels in an org chart, Team PromoteHER works to create a readily-accessible hub of resources to help women and other minorities identify their personal and professional strengths, and empowers them to promote their value and advocate for their own career advancement and recognition. In addition to this online toolkit and resource hub, PromoteHER will also create a journal that mirrors the content and provide a space for individuals to track their professional skillset and value, reflect on their goals and achievements, and determine the next steps for their careers.
Mission: Retain women and minorities in the AEC industry by promoting equitable advancement opportunities, from the start of their internship through retirement, for all. Equitable career advancement in AEC will become the standard at every company, women and other minorities will no longer feel like they need to go out on their own for recognition and ownership.
