Construction and engineering have to traditionally been male – dominated environments. We are seeing a slow-but-sure shift to one which is more balanced, however it can be a very long journey to achieve the sorts of gender balance that we would commonly see in other industries. Our modelling suggests that even with a concentrated focus on shifting the balance, it can take the “average” construction company more than a decade to reach parity +/-5%. Even where there is a strong desire to address gender balance within teams, leaders need to invest in the culture of the organisation to ensure that changes are seen positively and contribute to a healthy culture. Our Bridging The Gap program uniquely helps organisations address this need. Contact us to discuss how Bridging The Gap will help your organisation achieve its gender balance objectives in the best possible manner.
