Cement and Concrete Industries Recognize International Women's Day
The London-based Global Cement & Concrete Association (GCCA) has released a video in connection with International Women's Day that recognizes the positive impact of women in the cement and concrete industry and advancing gender equality. The GCCA describes the video as a call-to-action short film featuring some of the women across its member companies and affiliate associations who are making a positive difference.
Dinah McLeod, Chief Executive, GCCA said: “As we help build the sustainable world of tomorrow, ensuring gender balance across all levels will encourage innovation and the forward thinking that we need to meet our climate goals. Our industry contributes to all UN Sustainable Development Goals including gender equality. We encourage more women to enter our industry to help shape its future and tackle the biggest challenge of our time – climate change.”
To help empower women in the cement and concrete industry, the GCCA runs the Global Cement and Concrete Industry Women’s Network and Lean in Circles to help improve diversity and representation. These initiatives aim to provide support, build confidence and ultimately increase diversity in these sectors. The Women’s Network holds meetings and discussions to bring together women across GCCA member companies. Lean in Circles connect women across our networks to address specific issues. Women across the sector are encouraged to join.
NRMCA hasn't been able to find statistics on women specifically in the cement and concrete industries; you can click here for breakdowns in the construction industry as a whole.
