CHANGE OF PLANS:
Due to an unforeseen emergency with our speaker, Jacqueline T.D. Huynh, we are postponing our EQ workshop for a later date. We keep her in our thoughts and wish her a positive outcome.
However, we are still meeting for our Summer Networking Soirée, because when life throws you lemons, you meet and greet with other #womenninconstruction and turn it into a fantastic event!
We appreciate Dr. Giovanna Brasfield and the project team at LINXS for graciously hosting our event.
Parking will run from $10-12 at the Airport Center Parking - Covered Self Park.

“The Los Angeles Stadium at Hollywood Park, or LASED (short for Los Angeles Stadium and Entertainment District ), is an open-air ETFE-roof-covered stadium and entertainment complex district under construction in Inglewood, CA.
Planned to open in 2020, the stadium will serve as the home to the Los Angeles Rams and Los Angeles Chargers of the National Football League (NFL). It is also scheduled to host Super Bowl LVI in February 2022 and the College Football Playoff National Championship in January 2023. During the 2028 Summer Olympics, the stadium is expected to host the opening and closing ceremonies, as well as soccer. Archery will be held on the grounds outside the stadium.
The project will include the stadium of up to 100,240 seats (including standing room-only seats) and a performance entertainment venue of up to 6,000 seats while reconfiguring the previously approved Hollywood Park plan for up to 900,000 square feet of retail, 800,000 square feet of office space, 2,500 new residential and condo units, a 300-room luxury hotel and 25 acres of public parks, playgrounds, open space, a lake and pedestrian, bicycle and mass-transit access for future services.”
Visiting a construction site offers a first-hand opportunity to tour the project long before it is open to the public. For #womeninconstruction, you will have a glimpse of how it is transformed from design to an actual structure. Whether you are into the professional services, trades or support services, there is something to be learned here.
Join NAWIC Los Angeles for an exclusive tour of the Inglewood Stadium project!
Group size is limited to 25 and will be filled on a first-come first-served basis.
