Statement:

The construction industry is a male-dominated industry, but it's time for that to change. Women are just as capable as men of working in construction, and they bring a unique perspective to the table. We need more women in construction to make the industry stronger and more innovative. I have seen firsthand how few women are joining the construction industry when I worked at Builders Warehouse. Diversity, equality, and inclusion are essential for a successful construction industry. When everyone feels welcome and supported, they are more likely to be productive and engaged. This is especially important for women, who often face discrimination and harassment in the construction industry. I am pleased to see more women in higher positions in the construction industry, and I encourage everyone to get behind driving diversity, equality, and inclusion in construction. It's the right thing to do, and it's good for business. As a Sales Manager, I have firsthand experience with how men approach women in business meetings, negotiations, networking, and lead generation. They can sometimes be dismissive or patronizing, and they may not take women as seriously as they would men. We need to create a more level playing field for women in construction. We need to provide them with the same opportunities as men, and we need to create a workplace where they feel safe and respected. When we do this, we will create a stronger and more innovative construction industry that benefits everyone.
