Overview

How can the UK’s construction industry be seen as more welcoming and supportive to women at all stages of their career?

Starting a family, taking a career break to travel, or taking on caring responsibilities might not always be top of mind when considering a new role. Therefore, how can careers in the construction industry continue to adapt to experiences women – in particular – might face? 

In this webinar, the speakers will discuss these points, share their own experiences, and also pass on advice they wish they had been given.

They will also explore what a supportive company looks like, how companies can develop and support women during their working life, and whether there’s enough visible role models at senior level. 

This event celebrates International Women in Engineering Day (INWED) and its theme; Enhanced by Engineering. INWED celebrates the amazing work that women engineers are doing to support lives and livelihoods every day. 

Together, women can support each other and promote their achievements in the industry.
