National Association of Women in Construction hosting program on women’s self-advocacy Nov. 15


The St. Louis chapter of the National Association of Women in Construction (NAWIC) is hosting a free program Nov. 15 called “The Art and Opportunity of Self-Advocacy.”

The event will be held at Clayco, 2199 Innerbelt Business Center Drive in North St. Louis County. Doors will open at 5 p.m., networking will begin at 5:30 and the presentation begins at 6:30 p.m.

While women excel at advocating passionately and effectively for their clients, teams, friends and families, they often set up barriers to advocating for themselves. Hillary A. Sale will be the keynote speaker, focusing on developing self-advocacy skills to advance women’s careers, teams and networks.

Sale is an award-winning law professor at Georgetown Law and an affiliated faculty member at the McDonough School of Business at Georgetown University. She teaches courses on leadership, women and leadership and corporate law and governance.

Appetizers and drinks will be provided during the event, and there will be a raffle for attendees for a chance to win a $250 gift card to Chop House in Clayton.


Seats are limited. RSVP to Samantha Cook at Clayco at or to Stephanie Anderson at NAWIC at
