ADVOCATING FOR WOMEN IN THE CONSTRUCTION INDUSTRY
The Women Builders Council (WBC) is the leading association of women in the building industries in New York.
Sacks has served as the firm’s Association Director and today serves as its Executive Director. It produces all of the programs for the organization, including special events, publications and strategic meetings. Sacks also conducts leadership training programs on behalf of the organization and runs its annual leadership retreat. Recently, Sacks produced WBC’s 400-person 10th Anniversary fundraising celebration.
Last year, Sacks revitalized WBC’s Board and expanded it to include over 20 of the construction industry’s top women. Sacks is continuing that work for the organization and identifying new board members who will join WBC’s Board for 2015.
Sacks produces signature conferences and events that position the organization in the market. This year, Sacks is working on developing a strategic relationship between WBC and the City College School of Engineering at the City University of New York. This new program will identify new opportunities for students to connect with industry leaders through internships and other educational and leadership programs.
