WOMEN ARE WHAT THE BUILT ENVIRONMENT NEEDS

Oberoi Hotel business Bay, Dubai, UAE 01 May 2019

Women are what the built environment needs

It’s no secret that the construction industry is massively male biased. A CIOB article published on November 1, 2017 revealed that women make up only 13% of construction sector workers, while only 2% of workers on-site are female. These are staggering numbers that must be addressed, particularly as the demand for talent to build future cities, and infrastructure, is expected to skyrocket in the coming years.

Trailblazing women have already been contributing significantly to the sector on a global level, and the industry only stands to benefit further by tackling gender imbalance.

With the Women in Construction Summit, Middle East Consultant will shine a light on gender imbalance in the sector and discuss key issues, including how the sector can move forward, as well as inspire and nurture the next generation of female professionals.

Through presentations and panel discussions, delegates can learn from professionals and companies that are working to balance the gender scales, and hear inspirational stories from women who are already making their mark in the industry.

The Summit is also an ideal networking platform to meet with key industry figures and personalities, government officials and other decision makers.

GAIN PERSPECTIVE

Hear from industry veterans about the importance and benefits of balancing the gender scales, learn about key issues relating to the subject and why it’s important to identify and nurture the next generation of female professionals now. Listen to the challenges and day-to-day experiences of female professionals that have already made their mark in the industry.

BE INSPIRED

Inspiration is important and at the Women in Construction Summit, you’ll be able to find out what inspired some of today’s trailblazing female professionals. You’ll also learn about how they overcame gender bias challenges and other issues in their professional careers.

NETWORKING OPPORTUNITIES

The WIC Summit is an ideal platform to network and interact with respected professionals and decision makers from government bodies, consultants, contractors and solution providers from across the region. With several breaks scheduled for networking, you’ll be able to get one-on-one time with panelists and presenters, following on from interactive Q&A sessions and a CPD workshop.
