Engaging Women in the Built Environment 2019

UNSW Built Environment is committed to equity and diversity in the Built Environment professions. 

If we are going to reach 50% women in leadership roles by 2025 in the built environment industries we need to work together in new and innovative ways.

Continuing from the successful launch of this initiative in 2016, please join us for an evening with built environment women, from industry and academia, who will have 2 - 3 minutes to present:

1. Their professional background
2. What they're known for
3. How they can help other women in the Built Environment such as mentoring, internships, employment, research collaborations

On the night, we will share information about UNSW BE Involved programs that support the professional and academic growth of women in the Built Environment, and how you can be part of these exciting initiatives.
