Key Account Manager, AIS

I'm Anna, I've been working in construction in the fit-out sector at AIS Interiors in London for almost two years now. Previously, I completed my undergraduate at Durham University and Masters at the University of Bath before moving to Singapore and Australia to work in the Insurance industry. Fancying a bit of a career changeWe have worked on some really great fit-out and design jobs from Monzo to Braze in London as well as international projects across the globe. After attending a women in construction event the other day I would love to be a part of this community.

Statement:

Building a supportive and open culture around mental health is essential for promoting mental health and well-being, reducing stigma, and creating a more positive and inclusive workplace or community. In the construction industry, women are often underrepresented and face unique challenges, making it especially important for women in this industry to have access to mental health resources and support. With mental health becoming increasingly prevalent in society today, sadly taking the lives of so many, it is important the right help, support is given to prevent it from taking any more lives. This can be done through talking about mental health, creating a safe and supportive space where people feel comfortable discussing their feelings. Educating others about it is also important and can help reduce the stigma around it and help others to recognize symptoms Additionally, encouraging individuals to seek help when they need it can help reduce stigma and create a more supportive environment. This can be done through promoting access to resources and support, including employee assistance programs and mental health services: Finally employers and organizations can provide resources and support to help individuals manage their mental health, such as counseling services, support groups, and mental health awareness campaigns.
