Imbalance of gender representation is undeniably an issue in our industry, and indeed this is echoed at Curtins too. I am determined that this must change. I believe there are two simple but key areas that should be considered in our pursuit of this change – firstly we must encourage more girls into the industry by showing what a desirable career choice it is, and secondly we must celebrate the wealth of talented women already in action.
We are delighted to be running this event with Construction News and New Civil Engineer as it succeeds on both of those levels. Not only is it an opportunity to recognise and praise the incredible contributions women are making every day to their businesses and to the industry as a whole, but it will also provide those role models with another platform from which they can inspire tomorrow’s generation too.
