NAWIC Atlanta - Panel Discussion

"Building Influence"


"Across the Peach State, women are influencing the design, growth and success of communities, businesses and projects. They are women of character, integrity and purpose. These are females who took the bold step to found their own engineering, architecture or construction firms; who give of their time to mentor the next generation of professionals; who volunteer with the state’s numerous engineering associations to raise the profile of the industry; or who create Georgia’s built environment." - Engineering Georgia


What can you learn about overcoming challenges, tapping into resources, utilizing your network?  How can you get to that highest level of influence? Do you want to help build the next generation of influential women?
