The Women in Construction Summit offers the opportunity to meet with like-minded professionals working across all aspects of construction.

Join Alison Cox, Executive Director of Engineering & Technical Services and Gareth Parkes, Head of Data & Analytics on Wednesday 21st October and hear how a diverse environment with high levels of trust is vital to take advantage of the power of data, and gain insight into how to achieve this in your organisation.

The three-day conference aims to challenge the diversity divide and reshape our industry which advocates for female empowerment, and gender and racial inclusion. Those attending can expect to benefit from an extensive range of career and personal development workshops, enlightening discussions, and inspiring keynote presentations from trailblazing advocates who are speaking out to challenge the gender status quo.
