About this event

Join us for an afternoon of celebrating women in trade!

This event encourages like-minded women within the construction industry to connect, inspire and share their experiences.

Although this year, COVID-19 has changed the landscape in which we work, it has not changed the challenges that we, as women, encounter in the building industry. We want to help empower women in trade to support each other and rise to any challenge.

At Bowens we have actively sought to attract and retain women across the business by encouraging and supporting participation and career growth. We are proud to have grown the number of women across Bowens in recent years, however there is a lot of work to do if we are to reach gender equity – a goal we actively strive towards.

That’s why we are excited to host this event, and equally excited to welcome our guests for the afternoon.
