Women in construction

Beyond 1% Podcast

At Sir Robert McAlpine, we are committed to driving inclusion and diversity and inspiring industry wide change. Women represent only around 14% of the construction workforce, with a mere 1% working on the tools. Our “Beyond 1%” campaign aims to inspire more women into construction careers.

The Beyond 1% podcast series is about empowering women in construction, both on and off site.

Each episode is addressing stereotypes and confronting the realities of building a career in construction.

You will hear from women who have carved very successful careers in the industry and share their experience and advice on a wide range of topics.
