2021 Second Quarter Recap


July 13, 2021


It has certainly been a busy Q2 for PWC Philadelphia. We’ve welcomed our two newest Board Members, Tyra Redus and Maleda Berhane, who have wasted no time digging in and getting busy. Tyra will transition into the role of Growing Delegate and will also serve on the DEI Task Force. Maleda will roll up her sleeves and begin the work of expanding our Student Outreach Committee and launching a companion Mentorship Program, in cooperation with the Connecting and Growing Committees. In addition, our student Board Delegate, Illyana Bass, continues to make valuable contributions to both the Board and the DEI Task Force.

Engaging our newest Board members also allows us to reshuffle several Board committee assignments and pull our Executive Officers from Committee delegate assignments as we focus renewed effort on working with PWC National on an updated membership processing system, website and communication improvements, and the launch of a PWC National Board of Directors. Check out the Committee page on our website for exciting new developments as our Committees round out the second half of the year and begin 2022 planning efforts.

In addition, we are excited to announce a return to in-person events for this fall. But we won’t entirely abandon our beloved zoom. We will also continue to host many of our smaller events on a virtual platform to provide our members with flexible options to participate. We’ve missed you all and hope to see you at an upcoming event soon!

Our Spring 2021 Student Recognition Awards brought 19 applicants from across the AEC Industry. Applicants represented high school seniors, the trades, and matriculated undergraduate students in a wide variety of fields. Each applicant will be featured across our social media platforms into the fall, several were gifted with a one year student membership to PWC, and the five talented and inspiring women featured below also received a cash award to supplement their continued studies. Make sure to seek them out at an upcoming PWC event and welcome them all aboard.
