Outstanding Women in Construction & Design
Welcome to the first edition of our new annual special supplement honoring LA’s most influential women in construction and Design. According to labor force statistics, the share of women in the construction industry is currently only at nine percent, so the women who make their way to become standouts in that industry are truly pioneers. There’s obviously a way to go for representation in building game, but the needle is moving. Female construction employment actually picked up to around 970,000 in 2017 nationally. Of course, Los Angeles is truly a national leader when it comes to influential women – and the fields of construction and design are no exception. There are some particularly stellar construction professionals in the LA region who happen to be women and we’ve alphabetically listed some of the best of them here, hand-selected by the Los Angeles Business Journal’s Publisher and CEO, Anna Magzanyan, along with some basic information about their careers.

Congratulations to the extraordinary, trailblazing women who made this list and thank you for your contributions to the Los Angeles economy … and skyline!
