PROFESSIONAL WOMEN IN BUILDING
a Home Building Association of Greater Portland council
The Professional Women in Building Council (PWB) is the voice of women in the building industry, dedicated to promoting industry professionalism and supporting members.
Regardless of gender, all who want to support women in our industry should join PWB. Please get in touch with the Home Building Association of Greater Portland for registration information.
PWB hosts various events for members and our friends. From networking happy hours to educational seminars, inspiring retreats, and everything in between, we are always purpose-driven.
Throughout the year, our PWB is looking for ways to give back to the community and industry we love. Activities range from helping source items for HBF fundraisers to staining fences for a local nonprofit.
Passionate about supporting women in building, we are the proudest of establishing the PWB Scholarship Fund. Launched in 2022, we have raised over $10K and it's still growing!
The Professional Women in Building Council is a select group of residential building professionals who share strategies and solutions to promote, enhance, and support professional women in today’s home-building industry through education, networking, mentoring, and legislative awareness. The PWB works to: serve as an entry point for women looking to connect within the Home Building Association (HBA) of Greater Portland, facilitate peer-to-peer networking and relationship building, identify and help support leadership and business management training within the HBA, and provide mentoring that encourages opportunities and support for women in all facets of the industry.

BUILDING LASTING CHANGE
From opportunities such as becoming a trade professional or general contractor or owning their own company, the Professional Women in Building Scholarship Fund is dedicated to enabling women of all ages to begin their careers in the building industry.
Building lasting change isn't as simple as starting a scholarship fund (although we are thrilled about that)!
We need to build awareness for careers in construction at a young age! Please browse the list before for some of our favorite books written to inspire young readers. Connect with us for more ideas!
