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.
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.
