In many ways, I count myself very lucky that I went to an all girls’ school. Growing up in that environment, I didn’t understand the concept of gender inequality because it was something I was never going to experience. From the age of 4, we were taught, as girls, that we could do anything, be anything and no one could prevent us from our own success. We were the lucky ones.

Becky Franklin shares our insights from the Women in Construction summit

Last Thursday (16 May), we were lucky enough to attend the Women in Construction Conference. As my first conference I can say it was very much a masterclass in female empowerment. Seeing so many women, courageously, share their experiences, some good and some bad, of what it is like to be a woman in construction really gave a good insight into the sector’s challenges.
