The 15th annual Groundbreaking Women in Construction (GWIC) Conference, presented by Engineering News-Record (ENR) in partnership with Peckar & Abramson (P&A), took place May 14-16, 2018 at the historic Palace Hotel in San Francisco. Attended by a sellout gathering of 700, the 2018 theme of the construction industry’s premier leadership and talent management conference was ‘Grow Your Network + Build Your Performance’. P&A Miami Partner Melinda S. Gentile once again served as the event’s co-Chair along with Janice L. Tuchman, Editor-in-Chief of ENR.
“The 2018 Conference was by far our most successful event to date. The timely and relevant issues discussed by our high quality speakers and panelists, and the energy and involvement of all who participated, demonstrated why this event continues to be so essential for the construction industry,” said P&A Partner Melinda S. Gentile. “Takeaways from this year’s conference include the ability to bring actionable ideas and methods back to our companies and organizations for implementation and the tremendous value of learning, networking and making industry connections.”
