International Women’s Day 2020
We were delighted to welcome back Transition Year students from Coláiste Bríde to our offices for an event to celebrate International Women’s Day 2020.
This is our third year to run this event with Coláiste Bríde with the goal of introducing their students to the options open to them in the Construction sector and to celebrate the women who work in our organisation. Coláiste Bríde is an all-girls school in our community Clondalkin, and our event coincided with their #CBWellbeing week, whose theme is ‘Making Connections’, which we are proud to have done with this fantastic school.
As part of the #BuildingEquality event in Alucraft and Williaam Cox, we introduced students to various women across our organisation working in Quantity Surveying, Structural Engineering, Façade Design, Procurement, Quality, HR and Marketing. The speakers on the day brought the students through their career path and explained their decision to work in this sector, what courses to study to enter this field of work and relayed their personal experience of the construction industry.
The students were also brought on a tour of our production facility and design office so they could witness first-hand how a project moves through our company.
Thank you to Principal Marie Therese Kilmartin for facilitating this event and to all the speakers and volunteers who helped bring this event together.
International Women’s Day 2020 campaign theme is #EachforEqual
An equal world is an enabled world. Individually, we’re all responsible for our own thoughts and actions – all day, every day. We can actively choose to challenge stereotypes, fight bias, broaden perceptions, improve situations and celebrate women’s achievements. Collectively, each one of us can help create a gender equal world.
Let’s all be #EachforEqual.
