Ann McNeill, Founder

On December 12, 1991, the vision for the National Association of Black Women in Construction (NABWIC) was conceived as an idea while I was thinking about the vision for my life. From the inception of the concept, it was to be a coalition that represented the voice of Black Women in construction.  Always, the intent was to "go back "into the junior high schools, high schools and colleges to encourage young Black Girls and young Black Women to enter the construction industry as professionals, tradeswomen, architects, engineers, suppliers, contractors, subcontractors and laborers.
