Andy Krafft & Jordan Stevens

She Built This City encourages, equips, and empowers women and girls to pursue careers in the construction and manufacturing trades. The mission is to spark interest in startups, careers, and exploration in these areas through after-school programs, camps, workshops, women-focused career fairs, and conferences. She Built This City helps women and girls in all stages of life to foster their skills and interest in maker spaces they may not traditionally be exposed to – construction, automotive, engineering, equipment operation & entrepreneurship in underrepresented spaces.

Founded by Demi Knight Clark, a residential construction industry executive for over 20 years, She Built This City envisions a world where #20PercentBy2020 is not only a smashed ceiling by thousands, but also women and men are equal in all trades. As the “only woman in the room” much of her career, Demi is a passionate advocate for equal representation at the table in all things – from boardrooms to sports endeavors.

She is owner of Knight Clark Collective, a boutique consulting firm, an Ironman triathlete, mountain climber, marathoner. and graduate of Yale School of Management’s Global Executive Leadership Program. In 2019 she said "no more excuses” to starting She Built This City and the rest is history.
