CIOB Publishes ‘Women in Construction’ Report

The Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB) has today published ‘Inclusivity: The Changing Role of Women in the Construction Workforce’.

This report, written by Sonia Gurjao from the University of Reading, aims to raise the debate about the exclusivity of women in the industry, and assesses the real barriers faced by women today.

Almost 200,000 women work in construction which makes up just 10% of those employed within the built environment. Construction was an industrial sector highlighted by the Equal Opportunities Commission as a no-go area for women.

Michael Brown CIOB deputy chief executive, “Attracting and retaining more women in the construction sector is a key priority for the UK. In countries such as ours where skill and labour shortages exist increasing the number of women in the workforce would go some way to solving the problem.”

“Many industries, including the construction industry, harbour discrimination through unequal pay schemes. The CIOB recognises the positive contribution of women within the industry and calls for women and men to be treated as equals.”
