SUSTAINMENT LOGISTICS AND TECHNICAL WRITER, QTEC AEROSPACE 15 Years of Experience in the AEC Industry Amy Kunselman has spent most of her working career in male-dominated fields, which has led her to seek ways to address the behaviors that are holding women back professionally without alienating others to the point that they are not willing to listen and learn. Amy’s perspective has changed significantly throughout her life–professionally and personally–and she has experienced the different ways in which women and men are treated or valued based on their work status. She is particularly interested in advocating for the LGBTQ+, who she believes are still not given a fair and safe environment to live and work in.


DIRECTOR OF BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT, FLATIRON CONSTRUCTION 17 Years of Experience in the AEC Industry Andrea Narendorf’s experience in the AEC industry has developed into a key understanding of the challenges women face when it comes to recruitment, retention, and diversity. This experience led Andrea to seeking a network of women within the industry who face challenges head-on to find actionable solutions that will continue to build momentum and increase the participation and success of women. Andrea further believes that exposing girls and young women to individuals who look like them and are successful in the AEC industry will serve to increase not only the number of women in the industry but also their diversity.
