Celebrate International Women's Day with the North West Region

Posted in Forthcoming Events North West

Celebrate International Women's Day 2017 on Wednesday 8th March with NAWIC North West region's Construction Skills Breakfast Seminar, sponsored by Hilti (GB) Ltd. All those working or studying in construction or a construction-related industry are welcome.

Join us to hear 3 keynote speakers focus on "Tackling the skills gap in construction by embracing diversity, inclusive employee development programs and transferable skills.”

With women making up only 11% of the construction industry, International Women's Day is the perfect setting to discuss this topic.

7.30am - Registration and breakfast buffet

8-9am - 3 Keynote speakers focussing on "Tackling the skills gap in construction by embracing diversity, inclusive employee development programs and transferable skills.”
