WCOE is the Voice for Women in Construction

Join WCOE's community of women business owners and corporate executives who are changing the face of construction throughout the United States.
Welcome to WCOE

Forty years ago a group of forward-thinking women construction entrepreneurs came together to help each other succeed in a male dominated industry and to address industry-related inequities through legislation. Our goal was to promote business opportunities for each other, and as a result formed Women Construction Owners & Executives. Today, WCOE is recognized as the leading national voice advocating for women business owners and executives in the construction industry.
