Women & Work: Sectors Pathways Initiative

As part of the Women & Work: Sectors Pathways Initiative, which aims to raise recruitment levels in sectors where women are underrepresented, we are running a number of workshops designed for ALL women in the built environment sector. The initiative is in response to recommendations by the Women & Work Commission?s report ?Shaping a Fairer Future? and receives government funding, matched by employer contributions.
All the workshops are Continuous Professional Development (CPD) certified and count towards 3 hours towards their annual CPD ? with accompanying certificate. These events are aimed at women who work in all professions in the UK construction industry, from those in technical and/or professional roles, to those in administrative roles.

The topics are aimed to address women who wish to stay or progress their careers in male dominated cultures; within the UK?s built environment sector this is exacerbated by a lack of supportive mechanisms for women. To give you an example of the topics, we cover the following areas: Improve your career prospects, Networking and communicating with confidence, Conflict resolution, Introduction to construction and Soft Management Skills, Lean construction etc. Our website has further details of past events .

Furthermore, in addition to providing useful training and skills, these workshops are based upon action learning and networking principles and activities. Also, through word of mouth, job opportunities and support can be garnered from one another, within growing groups. The workshops help women to increase their earning potential and aids in career progression.

A I mentioned we can offer to do an in-house workshop for women within the sector (catered to their specific needs, at a venue convenient to the women ) if we can get a good number. We will take care of the costs involved, i.e. venue, catering etc.

I would really appreciate if you could kindly disseminate the attached flyer to all relevant organisations who you think would most benefit from this programme.
