Professional Women in Building


CBIA Professional Women in Building (PWB)

Our mission is to support the advocacy efforts of the California Building Industry Association (CBIA) and create a community of individuals dedicated to instilling confidence, fostering inspiration, and advancing professional opportunities for women in building.



The Professional Women in Building council is governed by a group of volunteer leaders who aim to connect, educate, and inspire others. Meet our 2019 board.

Our council’s networking events, educational outreach, scholarship program, and award-winning legislative advocacy efforts are just a few of the many ways we support homebuilding and give back to our community. Read our fact sheet to learn more about our council.


When you join the CBIA PWB council, you join the ranks of other dedicated, ambitious and successful women and men throughout California who support and uplift one another, both personally and professionally. CBIA PWB membership has many valuable benefits. More about PWB membership.
