Championing diversity in the industry

Emma Bull, framework manager for ISG, international construction services company, and SCF framework partner, gives her take on the importance of diversity in the industry. Emma believes that the construction industry needs to do more to address the gender imbalance in our workforce, particularly for the next generation of construction professionals. Statistics show that less than 7% of students on construction courses in further education in 2015/16 were female. (Source: Destinations of Construction Learners in Further Education CITB June 2017).
