Volunteering to help with worthy causes is nothing new for Rabbitt, who was named as one of Washingtonian magazine’s 2003 People of the Year.
As CEO of the Washington area’s third-largest female-owned business and a leader of the Washington Building Congress and Commercial Real Estate Women, Rabbitt has encouraged women to build careers in construction and commercial real estate. As president of the International Women’s Forum, she helped create a Leadership Foundation to fund a fellows program for women moving up the corporate ladder. In addition, Rabbitt has helped raise funds for the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure and for My Sister’s Place, a program for battered women.
