Delta Membrane Systems recently launched the Women of Waterproofing Networking Group at a lunch event on 17th May 2018.
The theme of the lunch held on Thursday 17th May was “Seeking to Inspire by Being Inspired”.
Topics of conversation included:
• How did you get into the Waterproofing Sector?
• How can we encourage other females into the waterproofing sector?
• Have you experienced or encountered a “gender” gap in your current role?
Recent stats reveal that 1 in 4 female professionals don’t currently network and Delta Membranes took it upon themselves to rectify that. Networking is essential in any industry, but you could argue it is even more so in the Waterproofing Sector.
Women make up around 14% of construction professionals within the United Kingdom, the Waterproofing Sector is lacking somewhat behind, women make up only 3% of waterproofing professionals.
There is a huge amount to be done to ensure that the industry is attracting, recruiting and retaining talented women into the full range of roles and at all levels within the structural waterproofing industry.
The Women of Waterproofing Networking Group are focused on developing and encouraging more women into waterproofing sector and for greater acceptance.
As part of Delta Membrane Systems Limited’s commitment to diversity and inclusion they are working hard to increase the representation of female CSSW qualified Waterproofing Design Specialists. This strategy includes supporting and sponsoring the Women of Waterproofing Networking Group.
