WomenBuild (WB), launched in 2020, seeks to inspire, support, encourage, connect and celebrate women in Industry. In Alberta, women make up 45% of the overall workforce. However, within the Alberta construction industry, women make up just 14% of the workforce and just 5% in the skilled trades. Not only are women underrepresented in our industry, but they are also underrepresented in leadership positions and the pipeline of women being trained in construction-related disciplines like engineering and trades remain small. There is much work to do!
Open to women of ECA member firms, WomenBuild is a place of inspiration, support and mentorship to women. Group members will enjoy unique networking events and educational opportunities while engaging with their industry peers.
