The UK government is planning to drive economic stimulus by spending £640bn on construction and infrastructure projects over the next 5 years.
Most of this will be spent with the UK’s top twenty contractors.
Its impact will disproportionately benefit men and have considerably less impact on women.
With a 22% difference in the gender pay gap and with less than 20% of women on boards, women are missing out.
This is an easy fix.
Our aim is to engage and energise government and procurers to improve the 3R’s for women in the construction industry:
We are calling for companies who generate 50% or more of their revenue from the public sector to ensure they have:
50% women in executive positions by 2030
30% women in executive roles on top 10 contractor boards by 2025 (excluding Non-Executive Directors)
50% women in entry level roles by 2025
Zero gender pay gap by 2035 – starting with equal pay for equal work!
We launched The Rebuild Project on International Women's Day 2021. Be one of the first to commit to change.
The Government have already made commitments to equality and diversity though the Construction Playbook and PPN 06/20: Taking account of Social Value in the Award of Central Government Contracts. We are calling on the Government to ensure these guidelines are followed by all construction companies being awarded public sector contracts.
