Almost 40 years ago a group of forward-thinking women construction entrepreneurs came together to help each other succeed in a male dominated industry and to address industry-related inequities through legislation. Their goal was to promote business opportunities for each other.

Today, WCOE is recognized as the primary voice advocating for professional women in the construction industry. Our members own and operate general contracting, subcontracting, design, engineering, service, supply and manufacturing companies. We provide professional services to the construction industry. We touch every aspect of the construction pipeline from project conception to design, construction and close-out.

WCOE has made great strides over the past 30+ years, but we still have a long way to go. TOGETHER WE CAN LEVEL THE PLAYING FIELD.

The members of Women Construction Owners & Executives USA wish to thank our Corporate Alliance Partners for their ongoing support of our mission and vision. Without their commitment to us, we would not be able to accomplish all that we are able to do to encourage and support women who choose the non-traditional path of construction.
