Join us for the world’s largest gathering of LGBTQ/Allied businesses and professionals in Architecture, Engineering, and Construction and the official ‘Kick-Off’ to LGBTQ Pride Month across the United States with
our FOUNDERS DAY 2023: ENGAGE!
BuildOUT California’s Founders Day has quickly become the world’s largest gathering of LGBTQ/Allied businesses and professionals who are looking to connect, advocate and build capacity within the Construction and Built Communities.
The theme of this year’s event is also one of BuildOUT California’s hallmarks: ENGAGE! As we always say, “Being part of BuildOUT is never a spectator sport” so we invite you to “get on the field” and make a difference!
Based on the success of our inaugural Founders Day in 2022 we’ll showcase even more extraordinary LGBTQ/Allied firms who are breaking down the ’concrete ceiling based on their experience, qualifications and capacity – and – you’ll have the opportunity to attend forward-thinking industry panels with topics ranging from transportation and infrastructure, above and underground construction initiatives, and workforce, equity & inclusion in infrastructure.
We’ll gather for our Gala Dinner & Awards which promises to be one of the most dynamic events in the industry with world-renown guest appearances, time to network with industry leaders and most of all having FUN!
Lastly – we invite you to join us at Spire 73, on the 73rd Floor of the InterContinental Los Angeles Downtown for our special brand of ‘After-Party’ under the stars with unrivaled views of Los Angeles!
