The Forshaw Group is proud to continue to represent the women that operate within the construction industry and across our workforce. We have always been committed to increasing diversity by promoting gender equality both internally and externally within all we do in the company.
With International Women’s Day today, we don’t just support women on this recognised day, but every day of our operation. We are proud to help enrol, train and support women who are interested in starting a job within the construction industry and help them achieve their goals.
Yesterday (March 7), our very own Julie, Laura and Nicola attended the Knowsley Chamber international woman in business day, 2023. The delegates were welcomed by Lesley Martin Wright, and it was a fantastic opening to the event. Lesley has been High Sheriff of Merseyside from last April but leaves her role to a new recruit in April of this year.
This year’s topic is equity and how equity isn’t just nice to have it’s a must have. Equity is justice according to natural law, freedom from bias or favouritism. It should be all businesses focus to have gender equity. It also looked at the difference between equity and equality
Speaking of the Women in Business event, Julie from The Forshaw Group said, “It was an inspirational event. The guest speaker, Jenny Sims, Assistant Chief Constable of Merseyside was such a pleasure to listen to and she covered many topics. Equality, Diversity, and Inclusion were key factors for her speech. Jenny is an inspiration to woman and to show how a woman can work her way up the ranks in such a male dominated job.”
We are continually looking for opportunities to hire and encourage women to choose a career within the construction industry, by looking to recruit and support more women to the team.
