Connect with senior level professionals in small group interactive discussions with decision makers, community leaders, clients and peers to tackle the tough and timely questions at hand: how to build, maintain and leverage meaningfully diverse project teams.

December 9, 2020: Erleen Hatfield, PE AIA, Managing Partner at Hatfield Group, and Darien M. Sykes, PE, President of Sykes Consulting, Inc., discuss their successful collaboration on major sports projects. They will present strategies for going beyond minority and women owned business procurement requirements to the realization of full community involvement and commitment.

Subsequent sessions will focus on other major projects with uniquely diverse project teams; industry leading speakers to be announced.

The purpose of these conversations is to expand the understanding of opportunities for diverse team building even in projects where it is not required.

Who should attend: Principal-level participants in architecture, engineering, construction, real estate development, and law.

Participants will receive BWAF “lunch boxes” curated for each session.

Sponsorship opportunities available, please email for further details.
