Taking the driving seat: You can (shape construction)!
Research by the National Association of Women in Construction (NAWIC) shows that one of the strengths women bring to business in general and the construction industry, in particular, is creative problem-solving.
Throughout history, women have created solutions to overcome a particular challenge and yet this is not something most people know about. The fire escape, multifunctional kitchen furniture solutions, solar heating and workplace ergonomics are just a few examples of solutions to problems with a female authorship.
We want to show that our industry can provide the framework for innovation and that there are many ways in which this materialises, with women actively seeking to implement changes which will benefit the industry as a whole.
Hence this conference will be geared up to inspire and empower attendees to look around and take action to make a difference within their own environment and the industry as a whole without the need to wait to be given the opportunity.
Built By Us Founder Danna Walker will be taking part in the "Women Shaping the Industry Panel". For more information and tickets visit the link below:
