Cheers for women in building!  Read on to find out how you can encourage women to pursue and excel in careers in the male-dominated industries of construction and development – while enjoying a fun night out at Downtown Summerlin sipping a variety of delicious wines!

Meet the Professional Women in Building (PWB) Council, a dynamic organization working to increase opportunity and visibility for women in building. An organization that is part of the Southern Nevada Home Builders Association, PWB is the proud voice of women dedicated to promoting industry professionalism and supporting members at local, state and national levels. 

The organization focuses on new educational programs, site tours and Lunch & Learn sessions to foster networking, educate and build connections for women in the industry while enhancing both professional and personal development.

Now with more than 150 members, PWB also offers scholarships and actively gives back to the community through several philanthropic initiatives. PWB’s biggest annual fundraising event- “Wine Pull – Uncorked for Scholarships,” is set for Sept. 14 at Downtown Summerlin with proceeds benefiting PWB’s Foundation for Scholarship that helps women statewide seek post-secondary education in the trades, building construction, engineering or architecture industries. This year, alone, more than $100,000 has been raised for scholarships.

So how does the Wine Pull work? Each entry is $40 per person that includes a numbered wine cork. Each cork corresponds with a bottle of wine that matches the number on the cork, so delighted guests take home a surprise bottle of wine with each entry. Wines range in value from $15 to $150. The evening event, from 6 to 9 p.m., takes place on The Lawn at Downtown Summerlin.
