Labour party conference Brighton 2019

We are excited to be attending the Labour party conference in Brighton on 21-25 September.

By Becky Franklin

In many ways, I count myself very lucky that I went to an all girls’ school.

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.
