Celebrating the role models and organisations empowering women in construction and engineering

This year Construction News and New Civil Engineer are once again joining forces to champion the role of women in construction and engineering. Following the success of our 2022 Inspiring Women in Construction and Engineering event, the two publications will work together to provide networking opportunities and learning resources to help women make career progress and celebrate organisations being great places to work for women. With a continued focus on encouraging the development of women within the sector and improving EDI policy, the Inspiring Women event programme will bring together women and male allies from across both sectors to network, learn and celebrate their successes. 


This year's event programme commenced with the 'Unlocking the potential for flexible working' webinar Wednesday 8 March 2023. The webinar will brought together a panel of experts to discuss will the benefits of flexible working to attract and retain talent in the construction and engineering sectors with a panel of industry experts.


This years Inspiring Women in Construction and Engineering Awards return to recognise the women and teams making outstanding contributions to gender diversity within their industry.
