Honoring Women in Construction

The AECOM/Turner team recently organized a mixer in honoring the women who play a pivotal role in building Intuit Dome for Women’s History Month. Held on Thursday, March 7 at Cineopolis, located across the street from the Intuit Dome at Hollywood Park, the event was a memorable gathering.

Themed “Keys to the Future” for this year’s Women’s History Month, the mixer served as an opportunity to acknowledge and pay tribute to the accomplishments and contributions of women in constructing the arena. Organized by PDA Consulting and hosted by the AECOM/Turner Joint Venture team, special commemorative tote bags were donated by the Clippers to celebrate the women working on Intuit Dome, along with special gifts for five recognized members of the project team. Additionally, two craft workers were honored for their dedication not only to the project but also to their teams.

The event was attended by many distinguished guests, including Councilwoman Gray, Councilwoman Faulk, and City Clerk Aisha Thompson who highlighted the advancements of Women in the construction industry and the importance of their roles in all aspects of society. The mixer provided attendees with a platform to connect with others in the industry, discuss ongoing projects, exchange ideas, and build professional relationships.

Historically, construction has been a male-dominated field. However, there has been a growing acknowledgment and encouragement for women to pursue careers in construction, spanning roles such as architects, engineers, project managers, and the many construction trades.  Events like these play a crucial role in career development and fostering community within the construction industry and beyond.

We extend our gratitude to all the attendees, Clippers and elected officials who helped us celebrate Women’s History Month.
