As part of our work in Diversity within Construction, AFTA Thought were thrilled to be a part of the ‘Women in Construction and Non-Traditional Sectors Conference’ which took place in Northern Ireland in March.

Construction Skills in Northern Ireland, alongside The Equality Commission NI and WomenTec, who organised the conference, invited the AFTA Thought team to provide a lively thought provoking session. It highlighted the latest report findings about the blocks and barriers facing women who want to pursue a career in the construction sector. A great day was had by all, and many of those who attended thanked the all-women team from AFTA Thought for getting those difficult messages across.

AFTA Thought would like to say thank you to those who made the event such a success, and especially for the warm Irish welcome that they received on the day.
