Women in Action


Connex and the Connex Foundation recognize the unique challenges women face in the facilities management industry and are committed to focusing attention on those unique needs.

The Connex Women in Action (WIA) Committee supports the advancement and introduction of women into the facilities management industry through Giving Back, Professional Development and Networking.

In partnership with the Connex Women in Action Committee will be awarding a professional development grant to allow women within the Connex membership to obtain the ProFM credential free of charge. This grant was created to support this effort specifically to women and all funds raised through this fundraiser will go directly towards the Women in Action Professional Development Grant.

For donations of $1,000 or higher, donors will be awarded a “Friend of WIA” status and will be recognized at the Women in Action event at the CONNEX2021 National Conference.
