Women Into Construction is an independent not-for-profit organisation that promotes gender equality in construction. We provide bespoke support to women wishing to work in the construction industry, and assist contractors to recruit highly motivated, trained women, helping to reduce skills gaps and create a more gender-equal work force.
The project was hugely succesful and the key outputs and outcomes are detailed in the Social return on Investment Analysis produced for WIC and found within the resourses linked to this project.
