Diversity and Inclusion (D&I) policies in organisations boost business. Research has confirmed that eliminating discrimination against female workers can increase productivity by up to 40%. 

The Big 5's Women in Construction (WIC) forum is a powerful initiative focused on gender balance, D&I and women in leadership, hosting A-list profiles, both men and women, who are paving the way for a new era in the traditionally male dominated construction field. 

dmg Events is a proud signatory of the Women Empowerment Principles. Find out about how you can get involved and become a signatory of WEPs here.
