    10.20am - 11.10am


    In the Built, Construction and Engineering fields, an industry and work environment that's male-dominated, women professionals may face challenges that will intimidate or restrict their ability to showcase their value at the table. However, those challenges only challenge the women professionals to transform their technical skills into tools that will equip their ability to lead. Thus, women's involvements in this industry has led and emerge into a more diversified role from a supervisory officer to corporate leaders.

    Hence, the women's journey in the industry comes complete with challenges and it applies differently from country to country due to the different country's culture and practices. This conference will provide individuals with the necessary knowledge and to empower their abilities in the industry.

    Empowering Women in Built Environment

    ​3.05pm - 3.45pm

    After we have provided education to women, they join the workforce like the rest of the population.  At the entry level, the distribution of men and women is probably quite equal.  However as we move up the hierarchy, fewer women are in the C-suite of built environment enterprises.  This panel addresses the barriers to women moving up the career ladder and ways to empower them in the built environment.
