Striving to ElevateHer

March 31, 2020

Headed by Zweig Group, ​ElevateHer is a movement to ensure equal opportunities in the AEC industry for everyone regardless of gender, race, sexual orientation, or ethnicity. It was inspired by the realization that the industry is challenged by women not entering or staying in the fields of engineering, architecture, construction and related fields at the same rate as men. In addition, there still remains a salary gap between men and women in leadership roles.

Shannon Acevedo, MDG's Senior Planner, participated in the first-ever class of go-getters in the industry to face this challenge and come up with solutions to close these gaps. Read more about her experience below.
