Welcome to the fourth edition of our annual supplement honoring LA’s most influential women in the construction, architecture and engineering fields. The women who make their way to become standouts in these historically male-dominated fields are truly pioneers. There’s still a way to go for representation in the building game, but the needle is moving, and the industry offers great opportunities for advancement for women. 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, along with 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.
Methodology: The professionals featured in these pages did not pay to be included. Their profiles were drawn from nomination materials submitted to the Los Angeles Business Journal. Those selected for inclusion were reviewed by the editorial department and chosen based on a demonstration of impact made on the profession and on the Los Angeles community.
