As a result, she started The National Association of Black Women in Construction (NABWIC), created to help build a pipeline for black women in the public and private sector, as entrepreneurs and young black women in school. The objective of the school component is for Black girls to study STEM in middle school, high school and college who may have a desire to enter the construction industry at all levels - from the trades to management and ownership. NABWIC creates a network of professional women in construction who teach each other how to turn contacts into contracts. This is done through a “Billion Dollar Luncheon” held each month. As a result of her track record, Ann has been featured in Black Enterprise Magazine, USA Today and ABC’s World News. She also is president of MCO Consulting Inc., a consulting company that provides outreach, monitoring and compliance for private sector firms that work on public sector property.
