Today women make up almost 50% of the US workforce, and only 9% of the Construction workforce, of which only 2.8% are employed in a managerial or professional capacity. Research has shown that having women in leadership positions is good for business. In 2014, Forbes reported “…in the companies that have the top 20% of financial performance, 27% of leaders are women. Among the bottom 20% of financial performers, only 19% of leaders are women.” Our goal is to increase the number of women in leadership positions within the A/E/C industry by raising awareness and preparing all to lead.


We know the A/E/C industry, our technical backgrounds provide the foundation of our knowledge and our combined 30+ years of people development experience bring results. We believe that helping the next generation of leaders is the best way to thank those who helped us achieve our success.

We also believe as Henry Ford once said, “The only thing worse than training your employees and having them leave, is not training your employees and having them stay.”

We can provide on demand, customized leadership development for all levels of staff. Contact us now to see what Constructing Opportunity can bring to your organization.

“I would highly recommend Peggy and Michaelann for their ability to execute leadership development programs. During the time we have worked together both of them have been instrumental in designing and leading leadership development programs for real estate and construction team members.  I am impressed by their passion for developing others, their active engagement with stakeholders and their flexibility in adapting programs to meet the evolving needs of the organization.

I would not hesitate to utilize their services if you are looking to strengthen and diversify your leadership bench.”
