Proud sponsor of Women in Construction Summit 2020

In line with our commitment to leading by example on diversity and inclusion and inspiring industry wide change, we are once again proud to be diamond sponsor of the forthcoming Women in Construction Summit.

We are proud to be diamond sponsor of the forthcoming Women in Construction Summit which takes place on the 9th – 10th June at Olympia, London.

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

The two 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.

Anthony Childs, our Head of People Development & Operations and Gareth Parkes, Company Knowledge Manager join the speaker programme.

With over 20 years’ experience within Human Resources Antony has developed and launched a range of change initiatives designed to improve employee engagement and work life balance. These include the introduction of improved benefit offerings, enhanced flexible working practices and sabbatical leave together with the launch of a new suite of Family First policies, a new approach to family leave shaped around the needs of the modern-day family.

Gareth leads data, innovation and digital transformation projects at Sir Robert McAlpine and is passionate about making best use of organisational knowledge and finding innovative solutions to established problems.

He believes collaboration and empowering people are the best ways to make change last. One way he’s making that happen is through his role in setting up the Construction Data Trust. Gareth oversees the regular Project:Hack events, where teams use data to find new ways of doing things better.

To see the full agenda and to register for the event, please visit the Women in Construction Summit website.
