Demi Knight Clark

A woman who renounces fearlessness & rather calls it being “unf*ckwithable” in life (women setting boundaries from the field to the boardroom), Demi has done everything from swing a hammer to lead thousands of team members to goals in publicly-traded companies. She helps individuals, employee resource groups, businesses & trade associations throw their own sparks in equity, inclusion, goals & “crucial conversations” to move the needles within groups on ROI. Through curated speaking, Spark Sessions facilitations &/or in person trade shows, she helps these populations dream bigger & accomplish goals beyond their wildest summit.

As one of only 2% certified Women Business Enterprises (WBEs) in Construction with her company Spark Building Group – with an emphasis on welding/metal fabrication & workforce development programs, she is passionate about solving deltas for women & moving the needle of equity.

Session 1

To Be Determined

9:45 am – 10:30 am

Health & Safety for Women in Construction

In this session, we will examine the unique challenges that women face both on the jobsite and in the office when working in engineering and construction.  In particular, we’ll focus on what employers, co-workers and YOU can do to keep women safe in construction.  Ill-fitting PPE, sexual harassment, lack of amenities and a world designed for men can all contribute to dangerous, unhealthy conditions for women working in the trades.  

10:30 am – 12:00 pm

It Takes a Village:  How We Can All Help Get More Women into Building & The Trades

Generating interest in the trades needs to start early and we can all play a part in making sure that girls and young women know that these careers are viable, lucrative options for them.  Hear from this panel of educators, industry leaders and career specialists about how you can be part of the solution to bring more females into designing and building.  Whether you are a business owner, foreman, HR pro, educator or a tradesperson yourself, you can make a difference.

Keynote
with Demi Knight Clark “From Fearless to Unf*ckwithable: Stop Auditioning”

Women welding engineering know how to throw sparks, & it comes with a “fearless” moniker. Demi Knight Clark built a career on being cleaner, stronger, faster, better as she rose through the ranks of leadership & entrepreneurship. She understands the challenges women+ face when climbing the ladders, & it’s time to set paradigms free. It’s not about being “fearless,” but channeling that natural, innate fear of ignition by transforming it into determined, force-of-nature “unf*ckwithable” energy. This energy helps create healthy boundaries, be curious about opportunity & harness goals. We’ll never be 100% ready – it’s about learning your cues to calculate risks on when to jump. Demi not only ignites an audience – in-person and virtually – with her energy and memorable stories, she punctuates hard-learned lessons with tactics that can be used to quickly adapt to the forces of change impacting your organization. This presentation is perfect for audiences navigating uncertainty, new regulations, unparalleled market forces, or looking to accomplish audacious goals. Give your group the necessary boost to come together as a team and innovate quickly and confidently.

  • Drop the “audition” of credentials, degrees & accreditations so your team can work ON the business, especially women+
  • Fail forward & create group trust through pointed exercises
  • Set actionable group/individual goals in paradigm-driven spaces
  • Recognize and harness the skills and talents of everyone around you
  • Demolish Imposter Syndrome & replace it with Unf*ckwithability
