CIF is celebrating International Women's Day on March 8th with a live stream CIF International Women's Day Online Event from Dunboyne Castle.
This years theme, #EmbraceEquality, is a call to action for everyone to work together towards creating a world where everyone has equal opportunities, rights and respect, regardless of gender.
With inspiring speakers, and engaging discussions, this is an event you won't want to miss. Among the speakers on the day will be Cork Chamber of Commerce leadership development consultant Barbara Nugent and Róisín Lafferty, founder and creative director at Lafferty Design.
They will be joined by industry experts and influencers to discuss the importance of this year’s theme, particularly in the construction industry where female representation remains at nine per cent of the overall workforce.
A host of other panel discussions will also include hot topics like sustainability, supply chain, recruitment and skills. Panellists will include women from CIF member companies such as Sisk Group, Suir Engineering and Glenveagh, to name a few.
So mark your calendars, gather your colleagues, and get ready to celebrate the achievements of diversity in construction across Ireland.
The live stream will be facilitated on the day, so you can get involved in the conversation, ask questions.
