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 Women in Construction Forum & Awards, in line with the UN Sustainable Development Goals, Goal 5, aim to highlight the positive socioeconomic impact a gender balanced workforce has by putting in the spotlight female professionals that excel in their role and companies that have a proven track record of implementing positive change to push the industry forward in equality and representation.
The Awards are open to female professionals and companies who operate in the Middle East, Africa and South Asia’s construction industry.
This award honours the outstanding achievements and the work done by an established woman in the construction industry who has demonstrated outstanding leadership skills and has brought about a positive impact for the industry.
This award commends a budding and enthusiastic woman in construction who has gone above and beyond in her role, is a promising individual to look out for and is an industry icon in the making.
This award recognises the initiatives, efforts and activities taken up by a company that has raised the bar and has set an example by cultivating an inclusive and diverse atmosphere in the workplace.
The Women in Construction Ambassador programme is a powerful platform for trailblazers who are transforming the construction industry from within, by promoting diversity and inclusion in the built environment.
Women's Empowerment Principles (WEP) is an initiative by the UN Women, the global champion for gender equality, and the UN Global Compact, the largest sustainability network in the world. It provides seven principles that organisations in all fields can commit to adopt in order to advocate gender balance in the workplace, community and market place.
