Breakout Session: How to Identify and improve Your Conflict Management Style

Angela is an Entrepreneur, Certified Mentor, Leadership Coach and Business Strategist specializing in collaborative problem solving. She is a native Floridian, born and raised in Orlando, and for 30 years has been climbing the ladder of success growing her leadership skills through a variety of management positions working for small companies as well as large corporations. Her construction career began accidentally in 2005 while consulting with a subcontractor who asked her to stay on and manage the company.  Having zero experience in this industry, she took the bull by the horns, learned the tricks of the trade and, in addition to managing, became an estimator and project manager. Two years later she opened her own Division 10 subcontracting company that she successfully grew and then sold in the spring of 2017.

Her NAWIC career began in March of 2012, when she immediately got involved and has blazed a trail ever since. She is a Past President of the Greater Orlando Chapter and served as National Chair of the newly modified PD&E Committee from 2013-15. 

Her latest venture is Call to Action Coaching & Consulting, an innovative approach to coaching designed for the empowerment of women using innovative programs to support their personal and professional goals. Through coaching, mentorship and thought leadership she is committed to the success of women on every level as they realize their potential, accelerate their performance and achieve greater results.   


“Every one of us in our deepest, most connected moments, senses that we are on a journey, that we have a role to play and that our life has purpose.  When we come together to create the space, to access the power and to unleash the potentials, we individually and collectively rise up into the fullness of who we are.”

                                                                                     — Angela Highland

NAWIC Benefits Spotlight

Meet Your Career Center Representative, Marty Rice

Did you know NAWIC has a Career Center? Did you know it is open to anyone, regardless of their relationship to NAWIC, members and non-members alike? Did you know we have a dedicated representative to help companies place job postings there and that he can help match individuals with those job opportunities too?

Meet Marty & his pal Lyle: 

"I manage the National Association of Women in Construction’s Career Center. My day is split between helping companies develop recruitment advertising strategies to leverage NAWIC’s diverse network and helping candidates access the Career Center’s resources. When I’m not working, I am either hiking around Austin or training Lyle, my Aussiedoodle. I also spend many evenings studying for the entrance exam for an MBA."

The Career Center is not only a benefit to our community, it's a benefit to NAWIC, as well. A portion of the proceeds from each job posting goes directly back to NAWIC. Share the news to help those in need of employment and NAWIC.
