Women in Construction


Women in Construction 

Construction, Infrastructure, Building and trades such as carpentry have traditionally been viewed as male-dominated roles, and even today they are some of the most gender-segregated professions in the world. Over the last few years, there’s been a significant increase in the number of women choosing careers in male-dominated fields.

We took the initiative to provide an exclusive platform for Women in Construction at all our construction events all over the world (Sydney, Auckland, London, New York and Scotland). The next meeting for women in construction takes place on March 15th at Sydney Build. The session will bring together and celebrate women and their achievements within the built environment industries. It has been found more and more women are seeking a rewarding and challenging career and are finding one in construction. With the industry being at the forefront of Australian skills shortage, this paves further opportunities which will be discussed during the show.

The Women in Construction Morning Tea is always a free-to-attend event which offers a lively panel discussion consisting of leading female experts within the industry. Complete with refreshments, the event promises an interactive platform for women and men to examine the issues of gender imbalance and inequality within the built environment.
