About this talk

Zweig Group’s 2021 ElevateHER cohort who have been working in special 6-month long task force groups will present their project findings at this symposium, bringing brand new, tangible, solutions to the industry.

We have an industry wide challenge with recruiting and retaining women, especially at the mid-career level. The idea behind She is Welcome Here is to catch the leaks and reenter them into the pipeline. We will tackle this on two fronts:​​ 1. By developing a roadmap for companies who want to create a welcoming environment for women (or men) to return to the industry after a leave of absence. We can normalize this transition through a Returnship that allows time for an employee to reengage in the technical aspects of their career while providing flexibility to re-enter. ​ 2. By developing an online aggregator to connect small to mid-size AEC firms with experienced candidates seeking to reenter the workforce after an extended leave of absence. ​ There are endless benefits of a Returnship. Attend our session to learn more why it's important and how small to mid-sized firms can benefit from participating in the program!
