The pivotal construction event for women in Europe is back this summer, at London's Olympia. Be inspired by industry leaders, nurture your skills and join a vibrant and talented community.
We're thrilled to announce that the Women in Construction Summit has now officially launched for June 2020 and will take place in London, the UK’s epicentre for growth in the construction industry.
This will be the third instalment of the sell-out event and we can't wait to welcome you and 1,400 industry leading peers for a gathering of stimulating discussions, thought-provoking talks and personal and professional development workshops.
The industry continues to face a variety of challenges including skills shortages, issues in project delivery and digital disruption and a prevalent gender disparity. Together with the support of our speakers, sponsors, partners and attendees, we can lay the foundations for better diversity and inclusion practices across the construction industry and mould a better future for its workforce.
"Inspirational - a fantastic opportunity to engage with fellow women in the industry and share ideas and experiences."
- Michelle Everton, Marketing & Communications Manager at Galliford Try
