Interview with Penny Pompei, National Executive Director of WCOE

Women owned businesses have been around for a while but now women are truly thriving owning their own business. We have loved getting to chat with women who are making things happen whether they are first time business owners, dropping out of the corporate world or even starting a business with the kids at home. No matter how awesome you are you still can always use a hand especially when it comes to creating some buzz for your business. That’s where Women Construction Owners and Executives come in to play.

Their core purpose is:

  • To promote the role of Women-Owned businesses in the construction industry,
  • To advance women in executive management positions within the industry,
  • To provide resources to enhance the professional development of every member,
  • To provide a network of executive women in the construction industry for peer-to-peer assistance and information,
  • To monitor and pursue legislation advantageous to the business community in general and the construction industry in particular.

This is a great organization and when we came across the site (having no idea it had been around for years) we immediately contacted them wanting to learn more to share with all of you. We spoke with the National Executive Director, Penny Pompei about how WCOE was started, how you can benefit from it and tips from Penny herself about being a woman in the business industry. Email Penny with any questions you have or if you just want to let her know how awesome she is: Penny(at)
