Built by Women celebrates women’s contributions to the built environment.

In addition to recognizing and supporting the diverse women working in these professions, Built by Women provides strong role models and mentors for both current professionals and students.

Women are underrepresented in the building professions: architecture (15–18%), engineering (4.5–13.7%), and construction (2.6%). Built by Women’s goal is to change this. Increasing the number of women in science, technology, engineering, architecture and mathematics is critical to our country’s ability to compete globally.

Teams that reflect diverse skills, backgrounds, and gender identities achieve greater innovation, leading to increased economic growth.
