In recognition of International Women’s Day 2021, we revisit Mea$ured conversations with women in construction in Australia. The guests are leaders at global construction firms in Australia.
In this episode the guests discuss women’s experience of the construction industry, positive and negative. Because these leaders bring a combined 100+ years of experience to the table, they focus a lot on how things have changed over time, for better or for worse. Plenty of takeaways here, the leaders talk about participation in women’s organisations, career options and increasing female participation throughout the industry.
