Arden is dedicated to providing opportunities for women in the industry. This event was no exception – the first-ever Women in the Mechanical Industry Conference held June 24-26, 2019 in Chicago. Both Katie Spatcher, sales account manager at Arden Engineering Constructors, and Joy Breive, project management/coordinator at MJ Daly attended the event. They indicated that they heard from very interesting and inspiring speakers. One of the roundtable discussions “Working in a Male-Dominated Industry” addressed issues that can arise when general contractors work with women on a project management level and how to build confidence and trust, especially for a young female just starting out.
Another roundtable, “Technology – Keeping it Simple & Useful” provided an opportunity to trade ideas on what’s working for contractors, what’s not, and what we can do to make it easier.”
