Great to be part of a networking event organised by Women into Construction to celebrate International Women’s Day on 8th March.

It was refreshing to see an all female panel discussion and to be in a room predominantly full of women ready to support and uplift each other.

The event at the prestigious venue, The Drum, next to Wembley Stadium brought together almost 100 women looking for careers in construction, plus some of the UK’s leading construction employers and trainers, the event aimed to launch the careers of the aspirational attendees.

Also launched at the event, was the recently formed West London Green Skills Hub, bringing green training and jobs to West London.

Sustainability in building design and skills shortages are two of the most pressing issues the construction sector faces. Currently, Women Into Construction estimates 11% of the UK’s workforce in construction are women.

The sector is reaching out to women, breaking down professional stereotypes, and women are responding to their call. From site managers to project managers, from carpenters to architects and surveyors, women are becoming more familiar faces on building sites across the UK in this growing, creative and dynamic field.
