Message from our President

Welcome to the Federation of Women Contractors! If you are new to our organization you will find us to be a dynamic group of women contractors who work tirelessly to promote opportunities for our members; and if you are already familiar with FWC, then you know this to be true.

We are committed to our membership, working closely with them to source job opportunities, collaborating with government officials on innovative programs and serving on important oversight committees to monitor initiatives and programs. FWC continues to be regarded as an important advocate for women’s business ownership and small business ownership by providing a strong and respected voice on local, state and national legislative issues.

Whether you are a woman-owned contractor looking for supportive services or networking opportunities, or a prime contractor searching for qualified and available W/M/DBEs, we hope you find this site to be an easy and resourceful tool.


Katie Canino, President
Federation of Women Contractors


Community Outreach


Launched in 2012, FWC Cares is a way to highlight the great philanthropic work many FWC members take part in.

Our members have a strong presence in helping others by giving or volunteering, and FWC Cares is a way to spread the good word about what our members are involved in and what interests they have.

The goal of FWC Cares is to share stories. By sharing great stories we hope to unite members with a new bond and form a vehicle to promote good causes within our organization. FWC Cares is here to help all of us grow stronger!


The Federation of Women Contractors is committed to advocating for women-owned businesses and women executives in the construction industry.

The FWC is fully engaged in economic development and public affairs to ensure its members are successful entrepreneurs.
