When you’re the only woman in a construction company, it can be difficult to get heard. When you’re the only Environment Officer in a construction company – it’s almost impossible. Or so it used to be.
Times they are a-changing. No longer is it acceptable to view sustainability as a fringe job or view healthy buildings as an after-thought. You want a healthy planet to live on? Then you have to Build Back Better which means minimising waste, reducing carbon emissions and implementing circular economy initiatives.
That’s our Managing Director, Georgia Elliott-Smith in the picture, starting her career in the construction industry. Listen to this podcast with Georgia and Sara Vaughan, host of Start Somewhere for Marie Claire and be inspired on how she navigated her 20 year engineering career, what triggered her to reconnect with her purpose and choose to challenge to build back better: https://lnkd.in/eUT8aKF
Be empowered that you can do the same.
