In a fireside chat entitled “Journey to Making an Impact,” two of Perkins Eastman’s firm leaders—Mary-Jean Eastman, FAIA, Vice Chair and Managing Principal of its New York City studio, and Barbara Mullenex, AIA, Managing Principal of the Washington, D.C., studio—will share anecdotes about their personal journeys to the top of a global architecture, design, and planning firm, at Building Design+Construction's fourth annual Women in Design+Construction Conference. The event will take place November 11-13, 2019, at the Fairmont Scottsdale Princess resort in Scottsdale, Ariz. 

Eastman and Mullenex will discuss the twists, turns, setbacks, and surprises they’ve faced through their long, glass-shattering careers and how they not only met those challenges, but made a positive impact along the way. The discussion will be moderated by Rachel Birnboim, AIA, LEED AP BD+C, Senior Associate and member of the Futures Council of Perkins Eastman and an Advisory Board member for the WIDC Conference.

Eastman will also participate in an AEC Firm Founders & CEOs panel at WIDC, which will give the audience an opportunity to get answers to their questions directly from women leaders who have paved the way for future generations in fields traditionally dominated by men.

The full conference agenda will be released later this month.

Since 2016, WIDC has brought together more than 400 AEC women leaders for leadership training, professional development, and networking. Participants in the two-day conference can earn up to 10 AIA CES learning units or professional development hours.

Each year, the conference program and educational sessions are developed in collaboration with the WIDC Advisory Board, made up of 27 leading AEC women professionals from a range of disciplines: architects, engineers, contractors, developers, marketers, business development professionals.
