Commencing our Women in Construction Summit Sponsorship

At RML we pride ourselves on becoming an industry leader in encouraging and celebrating women working in construction. In a renowned heavily male dominated industry, many inspirational leaders and events are dedicated to changing mindsets so talented women are not deterred from working in a construction based role.

A key change leader in this respect is the Women in Construction Summit; returning to London for another year to promote a reshape of the industry towards diversity. These events are essential in encouraging conversations around gender balance in the industry. We are therefore excited to announce our sponsorship of the June event in Olympia, London!

As bronze sponsors we will be attending the 2-day event filled with influential speakers, whilst also holding an exhibition space.

Following the success of last year’s event, the summit has expanded to offering an extensive range of career and personal development workshops, enlightening discussions, and inspiring keynote presentations from advocates who are speaking out to challenge the gender status quo.

This is an excellent opportunity for us to network with successful women in construction, as well as some of our customer’s representatives who are also confirmed to be attending. As part of our sponsorship we will be able to take a number of our own successful female employees, which can act as a form of motivation and inspiration for them in their own roles.

We are proud to employ a number of influential women at RML in various roles and seniority levels. More specifically, 41% of our senior leadership team are female as opposed to the 17% industry average.

We are proud of our increasingly female presence in the business, whilst also recognising we can learn from the insights gained from this event. Putting this knowledge into action, we aim to further improve our processes and champion inclusivity. To find out more about the day you can visit their website.
