Celebrating its 5th year, the European Women In Construction & Engineering Awards is one of the most prestigious events celebrating the achievements of women in these sectors. We are proud and excited to announce that our Asite Bid Manager Leen Saeb is selected as a finalist for the 2019 European Women In Construction & Engineering Awards and nominated for Best Woman in Business Development category.
According to the Department of Civil & Building Engineering, Loughborough University, UK; "The construction sector plays an important role in economic growth, however, the construction sector remains male-dominated and women’s growing role as decision-makers and buyers is not reflected by their input into construction innovation and creativity."
Breaking Down Barriers And Building New Heights
Women represent only 11% of the construction workforce in the UK and most of these jobs are office based and only 2% work in manual jobs. When it comes to women in engineering only 9% of UK engineering professionals are women, 18% Spain, 26% in Sweden and 20% in Italy.
The aim of the awards is to make these industries more enticing to women. To create role models for women considering a career in these sectors, while encouraging companies to employ and train more women in these industries.
