” to promote the role of women as leaders in the construction industry. See below and the Workshops and Events page for information about the campaign and the first workshop, to be held in Bristol:
Construction News’ Inspire Me campaign aims to promote the role of women as leaders in the construction industry and inspire future leaders and promote the industry as being gender neutral, welcoming of women in all roles.
The principle aim of the campaign is to empower women with the knowledge and confidence to advance their careers to senior positions within the construction sector.
To this end we are organising regional workshop sessions, with prominent speakers drawing on their own experience and success as well as best practice, to deliver indispensable career advice to women.
And what’s more, they’re free to attend for you and your colleagues!
Each workshop breakfast will provide an opportunity to:
- Network with prominent diversity ambassadors from both inside of and outside the sector.
- Learn and be inspired by industry leaders and peers.
- Get inspirational and practical advice on how to progress your career.
