Welcome to the Kansas City chapter of the Women Construction Owners & Executives USA

Our Mission

The purpose of the WCOE KC is to promote and endorse leadership, mentorship and opportunities for advancement of women leaders in the construction industry.

"Kansas City is proud to be home to the first local chapter of Women Construction Owners and Executives (WCOE KC) which serves as a model for the rest of the country. The work done by WCOE KC, as well as its individual members, is an example to all women in Kansas City who aspire to work in these important professional fields, and helps increase equity in our community."
