Make a contribution to women in Africa’s construction industry in 2016
The 4th annual Women in Construction Awards are set to take place on 10 May 2016 at the Gallagher Estate and will be collocated with the African Construction and Totally Concrete Expos. This prime platform is to identify, showcase and celebrate the increasingly vital role women play in the cement, concrete and construction industries.
The Women in Construction Awards programme not only honours women who have pioneered the development of the African built environment but also serve to recognise the emerging leaders of the industry.
The awards, which include individual and organisational categories, acknowledge the increasingly important role played by women in the industry.
The individual categories recognise ‘Pioneers in Innovation’ and ‘New Starters’ – women under 30 who, through their efforts, have been identified as ‘women to watch’ as they establish their foothold within the sector.
The organisational awards acknowledged organisations which have developed women’s roles through innovative training programmes as well showing their commitment to developing the careers of women in the industry.
The 2016 judging panel comprises 17 renowned industry leaders from across the continent who will be assessing nominations in the following categories:
- Pioneer in Innovation Award
New Starter of the Year – Under 30 Award
- Most Innovative Women Training Programme Award
- Excellence in Career Development Award
This is your chance to nominate an individual or organisation that has exemplified inspiration, vision, innovation and leadership for women in construction.
Make a contribution to women in Africa’s construction industry and submit your nomination today! Interested individuals or organisations can view the criteria and submission requirements for each category on www.womeninconstruction.co.za.
