WEBINARS FOR PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT
Building Perspectives is a series of free live webinars with UCEM experts and sector specialists.
Join us for topical conversations around the built environment and sustainability.
HOW CAN GENDER EQUALITY DRIVE A SUSTAINABLE BUILT ENVIRONMENT?
WHAT DOES IT TAKE TO GET TO THE TOP?
Sustainability Webinar – 13:00-13:45 (GMT), 10 February 2023
The second webinar of the series will look at how science and gender equality are vital for the achievement of a sustainable built environment.
Exploring what it takes to get to the top as a female in the construction industry, our eminent speakers will share their stories and how the plight for gender equality continues. They will discuss how the barriers can be addressed and where influence and policy can play their part.
- Are female construction employees still fraught with prejudices?
- How does the construction industry measure up to equal pay and the glass ceiling?
- With 37% of students being female on built environment-related programmes, why does this translate to a mere 14% female workforce in the UK?
- What difference can gender equality make to sustainability?
Join us to discover more and as International Day of Women and Girls in Science is the following day (11 February) take the opportunity to celebrate the critical role females make in science and the built environment.
