This is your chance to nominate an individual or organisation that has exemplified inspiration, vision, innovation and leadership for women in construction.

The 4th annual Women in Construction Awards is set to take place on 10 May 2016 at Gallagher Estate, and will be collocated with the African Construction and Totally Concrete Expo.

Winners 2015

The Women in Construction Awards programme honours women who have pioneered the development of the African built environment but also recognises the emerging leaders of the industry.

The number of women in technical/engineering is of particular concern as women are still grossly under-represented, with the percentage of women graduates in engineering still below 20% in many countries on the continent, and the number of women actively employed in the construction sector being much lower.

The 2016 judging panel comprises renowned industry leaders from across the continent who will be assessing nominations in the following categories:

Individual categories:

• Pioneer in Innovation Award
• New Starter of the Year – Under 30 Award
Organisational categories:
• Most Innovative Women Training Programme Award
• Excellence in Career Development Award:

Entries close on 29 February 2016.
