The Breakout Room – DWF Women in Construction Network

08 March 2022

The Construction Industry is an exciting and powerful arena in which to build a career. Particularly in these times of climate change and sustainability, as professionals in the industry we can really play a part in driving that global agenda.

Women have a unique role to play in adding a new layer of perspective in an industry where the male voice has played the leading part.

Although in recent years we have seen a shift, it is slow moving. It's now time to accelerate progress, to improve female representation and increase diverse talent pipelines in the construction industry.

Our Aim

Our aim is to create a positive environment for female professionals in the construction industry across the UK, Ireland, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales. Our network will help forge relationships and build connections.

What better way to achieve success than by sharing our collective ideas and knowledge?

Our Network

We are therefore proud to launch the newest Women in Construction network: "The Breakout Room" on International Women's Day.

Our Events

We would welcome your participation for our upcoming events:

  • Spring: A new spin on the Round Table: Gamification
  • Summer: Confidence Coaching with Nicola McGuinness (in collaboration with CIOB)
  • Autumn: The Breakout Room meets…
  • Winter: A Frosty Fair

If you would like any further information in relation to the network, please contact Aine McGuinness or Heena Shahzad, joint coordinators of the Network.
