Construction and carpentry have traditionally been viewed as male-dominated roles, and even today they are some of the most gender-segregated professions in the world. Over the last few years, there’s been a significant increase in the number of women choosing careers in male-dominated fields.
Auckland Build took the initiative to provide an exclusive platform for Women in Construction at all their construction events. The next and largest meeting for women in construction takes place on November 2nd in the Seminar Area at Auckland Build. The session will bring together and celebrate women and their achievements within the built environment industries. It has been found more and more women are seeking a rewarding and challenging career and are finding one in construction. With the industry being at the forefront of NZ’s skills shortage, this paves further opportunities which will be discussed during the show.
The gathering will commence with a panel discussion showcasing women’s expertise in the industry.
