Construction has traditionally been thought of as a male-dominated industry and if you were asked to name a female role model in the sector you’d probably be hard pressed to think of anyone. Thanks to the ever -changing concerted efforts to encourage women into the sector, today more women more than ever are taking up what was once considered ‘male’ positions and smashing outdated stereotypes.

Enterprise development and empowerment of the emerging sector is core to the cidb’s strategy towards fulfilling and implementing an integrated strategy for the reconstruction, growth and development of the construction industry. The cidb has identified women as a critical target for development.

The aim of the Empowerment & Recognition of Woman in Construction Awards (ERWIC Awards) is to encourage excellence among women and commitment among stakeholders to support women to develop and grow. It is also to shine the light on role models for women in lower grades, and motivate women in the higher grades.

The annual event celebrates, acknowledges and awards excellence of women within the construction industry.

Call for entries. Entries will be available online and will be open for 8 weeks from 1 March 2020 to 30 April 2020.
