Artelia recognises that it has an important role to play in attracting more women into the construction industry. In 2016 we set up the Artelia Women’s Network, (now the Artelia Diversity Network) and we are proud to support a range of initiatives that help to shape a more inclusive environment from mentoring and flexible working arrangements to careers ambassadors and awareness-raising events.
We were, therefore, very keen to participate in ‘Image of Women in Construction’ project, organised by the London & SE branch of the National Association of Women in Construction (NAWIC).
NAWIC is working with acclaimed photographer, Morley von Sternberg, to produce a photographic journal that showcases the diversity of women working in construction and shows young people that construction can be an excellent career choice.
Let’s keep on changing perceptions and show the next generation of young women that construction is a rewarding and challenging option for them.
