Are you a woman in construction? Are you a registered contractor? Are you making a difference in this traditionally male-centric industry?
We are proud to announce that CIDB is empowering and recognising women through the cidb Empowerment & Recognition of Women in Construction Awards 2020.
Once a male-dominated industry, the construction industry has seen great evolution over the past few years. Today, women are increasingly assuming positions once considered ‘male’ roles, overcoming outdated stereotypes. Enterprise development and empowerment of the emerging sector is core to the cidb’s strategy for growth and development of the construction industry.
The cidb has identified women as a critical target for development and has chosen to celebrate and encourage this group through an industry awards process.
The aim of the Empowerment and Recognition of Women in Construction Awards (ERWIC Awards) is to encourage excellence among women and commitment among stakeholders to support women in their professional growth and development. Through these awards, the cidb also aims to promote role models for women in lower grade construction categories, and motivate women in the higher grades.
