What is Built by Women (BxW)?
BxW is a social and educational initiative, celebrating women’s contributions to the built environment. In addition to recognizing and supporting the diverse women working in these professions, BxW provides strong role models and mentors for both current professionals and students.

Why is BxW Important?
Increasing the number of women in Science, Technology, Engineering, Architecture and Mathematics is critical to our country’s ability to compete globally. Teams that reflect diverse skills, backgrounds and gender identities, achieve greater innovation, leading to increased economic growth.
Women are underrepresented in the building professions: architecture (15–18%), engineering (4.5–13.7%) and construction (2.6%). Built by Women’s goal is to change this.

How Does BxW Work?

  1. A community gathers and submits its best women-built sites
  2. We gather an expert jury that selects the winners
  3. A major exhibition is held in the competition site for winners, participants and the community

When Does BxW Occur?
Built By Women is a constantly evolving program. Look at how we have grown in just two years!
