IWCE Awards

This year’s Inspiring Women in Construction and Engineering Awards will recognise the individuals and teams making outstanding contributions to gender diversity within their industry.

Held at the Royal Lancaster Hotel on 17 September 2024, this is a perfect evening to celebrate the fantastic people within your organisation.

The awards recognise individuals, teams, companies and initiatives that have helped contribute to making a construction or engineering firm and the industry a better place to work. This represents a unique opportunity for women within the civil engineering, geotechnical engineering and construction sectors to gain recognition at a national level and have their achievements celebrated across Construction News, Ground Engineering and New Civil Engineer.
