WEBINEX TALKS

Women in Construction

Building and construction is the nation’s second largest industry. It impacts on our everyday lives by building our communities and the homes, schools, hospitals, roads, offices, shops and airports that we take for granted. It also builds prosperity in every city, town and region employing more than a million people.
But with women currently making up only 11% of the industry’s total workforce and only 1% of building trades, the industry is missing out on the skills and talents of half the population.
Great architecture, design and construction have no gender.
Attracting the best the workers regardless of their gender means the industry will benefit and evolve with new skills, ideas and innovations, the business success of building businesses will be boosted and more women can take advantage of the fantastic career and job opportunities that our industry has on offer.
To empower and inspire women within the design, construction and related industries, Weathertex have brought together respected industry professionals to discuss their background, experience, the benefits in working within the building industry, any misconceptions and challenges faced by women working in our industry.
