Statement:

As a woman in construction, I am passionate about promoting gender equality and empowering women within the industry. It is essential to recognize and celebrate the invaluable contributions that women bring to construction, from project management to engineering and skilled trades. By actively encouraging and supporting women to pursue careers in construction, we can tap into a vast pool of talent, diversity, and fresh perspectives. Together, we can challenge stereotypes, inspire the next generation of female builders, and build a future where women are equally represented and valued in every aspect of construction.
