Professional Women in Construction: March Dinner

J. Fiereck Photography is a proud sponsor of the CT Chapter of Professional Women in Construction (PWC). Here are a few highlights from this month's dinner, which included the judging for PWC's signature cocktail contest (The winning cocktail, called the Steel Toed Heel will be unveiled at PWC's 10th Anniversary Celebration on May 9 at the CT Science Center). This month's program seemed particularly entertaining...coincidence?

It's a tough job, but someone has to do it. :)

The PWC does an amazing job of fostering and supporting young adults to pursue careers in architecture, engineering and construction, like this group of mentees from the University of Connecticut. (Go Huskies!)

The panel included a group of talented and inspirational women from the architectural, engineering and construction industry. As a mother of two daughters, I would love to see my girls up on a stage like this one day.
