January 29, 2020 | Katrina Hinrichsen


The Women in Construction Summit is back this summer and is set to build on all its previous successes. Our agenda is now live and packed with a stimulating programme of talks, workshops and more take a first look.

We've listened to feedback from last year's sell-out event, and now our third instalment of the Women in Construction Summit is poised to offer you even more than ever before. We'll have exciting new features, as well as a shedload of thought-provoking insights to support the growth of your organisation and you as an individual.

Over the two days at London's Olympia, you'll be amongst a community of 1,400 industry peers who are passionate about making a positive difference to the sector. Together, through knowledge-sharing and networking, you can help lay the foundations for a more pioneering and inclusive construction industry.

A breadth of topics will be covered in the conference, tailored to suit your interests. We'll delve into matters on leadership, diversity and inclusion, technology, sustainability, safety, intersectionality, career development, soft skills, organisational change, business and more.

In particular, these topics will focus on the strategies needed to move towards an inclusive work culture, and the wider challenges that professionals face in evolving the construction industry as a whole. They will put a spotlight on emerging talent and success stories, in addition to equipping you with the tools you need to ignite your passion and progress your career as a modern construction professional.
