Infrastructure Show to break down gender barriers within construction, says ODA

Olympic Delivery Authority lead on equality and inclusion Julie Amory has urged firms keen to tackle gender barriers in the industry to join the debate at next month’s Infrastructure Show.

Amory is among the line-up of keynote speakers at the 2011 Infrastructure Show. She will speak on helping to breakdown gender barriers within construction.  

‘The ODA’s commitment to increasing the representation of women in construction was born out of the recognition that the industry was in the same place as health and safety was 10 years ago,” she said. “Throughout its build programme it introduced a range of measures to increase and improve representation of women. 

‘The Infrastructure Show provides an excellent opportunity to network with peers while learning about the latest developments across a variety of issues that will help your organisation to grow,” she said.

“The Show is not just for those working in infrastructure; anyone who is interested in learning best practice in areas including equality, inclusion and health & safety would gain from attending this event.”

The Infrastructure Show aims to arm the civils sector with new and innovative techniques to reduce costs, increase efficiency and reduce carbon. It takes place at the NEC in Birmingham on 17-19 October.
