Cesario, Hunter Roberts Shines at National Women in Construction Conference
May 7, 2015 –Hundreds of leading professional women and key corporate partners have established new relationships with Hunter Roberts thanks to the 2015 Groundbreaking Women in Construction (ENR GWIC) conference, which took place Wednesday, May 6, at the TKP New York Conference Center.
The daylong event brought together preeminent female employees from the construction, architecture, engineering, legal, accounting, and subcontracting professions, allowing Hunter Roberts to exhibit some of the organization’s top talent and unique approach to a new national audience through sponsorship and participation in the event.
Highlights included the panel Successful Women Mentors, moderated by Stephanie Cesario, LEED AP BD+C, a vice president and Director of Interiors at Hunter Roberts. Executives from several leading national construction and engineering organizations, along with a best-selling author and personal coach, joined Cesario for this vibrant and well-received discussion. Panelists shared good and bad personal and professional experiences with mentorship, discussed the merits of formal mentor programs versus informal relationship-based opportunities, and the differences in mentoring women versus men and in mentoring employees belonging to different generations.
The discussion was a hit with the crowd, largely due to the participant’s ability to balance quality information with personal stories and humor.
Several other panels and presentations were given by featured speakers and discussion groups, ranging in topics from gender pay gap, balancing career and family needs, project compliance, workforce diversity, and workplace sexual harassment. In addition to these many learning opportunities, the GWIC conference offered catered food, multiple networking and business development opportunities, and a cocktail hour reception to close the evening.
The 6th annual GWIC conference was presented by Engineering News-Record (ENR), Dodge Data & Analytics, Architectural Record, and Sweets and SNAP building product information services.
