Women into Construction - Its Beginnings

The Women into Construction Project was developed on the Olympic Park to address the gender imbalance in construction. Seen originally as part of the legacy of the 2012 Olympics, it was felt that by increasing the numbers of women working in all areas of construction on a high profile site such as the Olympic Park, there would be a trickle-down effect throughout the construction industry, resulting in a permanent change in the traditionally male culture of construction. The project demonstrated that there are many women who are highly motivated and keen to find opportunities within the construction sector, and that they have a positive contribution to make once brokered into placements and employment.

Woman into Construction were funded throughout this period, by the Construction Industry Training Board (CITB) and the London Development Agency (LDA). On completion of the Olympic build in July 2011, the CITB were keen for the good practice that had been developed on the Olympic Park, to be extended to construction sites across London, and continued to fund the project with this remit.
