Women in Construction Summit 2020

Sarah McGonigle, Associate at White Ink Architects, is speaking at the inaugural CITBNI Women in Construction Summit today, Thursday 5 March 2020, on Career Management and Progression – Returning to Work.

I’m delighted to be given the opportunity to discuss my experience of returning to work following maternity leave with other women in the construction industry. I hope that, in sharing the three practical steps I took to prepare for my return, I can help others at a similar point in their careers,” said Sarah.

With a view to inspiring change and shattering stereotypes, the Summit will highlight inspirational stories, provide thought-provoking tips on career management, business advice and help identify role models for women currently working in the construction industry, those thinking of joining and for employers who support diversity or best practice in the industry.

Hosted by Sarah Travers the event features other leading industry professionals from local construction businesses such as Arup, Clanmil Housing, Farrans, Gilbert-Ash, GRAHAM, GRAHAM-BAM, Henry Brothers, McAleer & Rushe, Nicola McCracken Safety Services, NIFRS, Scottish Water, Turner & Townsend, White Ink, and Women’sTEC.

CITB NI run and facilitate the Women in Construction Network in Northern Ireland which is made up of a group of friendly, inspiring and dedicated women working in a wide range of roles within the construction industry. This summit was inspired by the network to help to support and promote diversity within the growing construction industry.

At White Ink we champion all women. Last year we profiled our outstanding female architects – who are positive role models not only for women now, but also for future generations of female architects. Read our ‘Championing Women in Architecture at White Ink’ blog.
