Casual Conversations with Kick Ass Women in Construction
BWiC invites you to join the conversation, to build connection, advance an initiative, maybe even solve a problem or two. We are honored to welcome prominent women within the commercial construction industry to share the intentional and the serendipitous, their hero’s and the villain’s, the opportunities captured, lost and set free, and what they spend far too much time doing, with their time. We promise, it will be worth yours.
As an added bonus we will be admitting six fortunate registrants—chosen randomly-- to attend in person (safely) at the AGC MA conference center. All other attendants will participate by Zoom.
We welcome this month's featured speaker Janet Chrisos, Deputy Director, MSCBA, 2020 BWiC Inspire Awards Mentor of the Year
Janet has successfully managed design and construction projects for Massachusetts institutions of public higher education for over 20 years. Janet earned the Bachelor of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Massachusetts/Dartmouth and is a licensed construction professional.
Janet is truly a ‘people person’ – she is competent and confident, in her technical knowledge and management ability, and brings out the best performance of her project team members, be they the campus client, architect, construction manager, or trade contractor. In over a dozen years at the MSCBA, Janet has played a central role in delivering over $1 billion in new construction and renovation of residence halls and student activity facilities for the state universities and community colleges supported by the Authority.
Janet is active in the profession, sharing her expertise to advance the state of the art for the future, including CREW Boston and the AGC MA “Conversations With...” speaker series. Janet is a rare talent, in terms of her professional accomplishments and, perhaps more important, in the way that she readily shares her knowledge and experience to benefit others. Janet is an optimistic and enthusiastic team player, most deserving of recognition by AGC MA as a Mentor for other women in the construction industry.
Janet will be joined by her colleagues Amanda Forde and Leigh Warren.
