At Wates we are committed to the long term sustainability of our industry, and to encouraging equality of opportunity for everyone, regardless of gender, faith or background. We believe our industry should be more representative of the communities it serves, and we, in turn, must play our part in promoting careers in the built environment for everyone and championing the role models we have in our own businesses.
2018 is a milestone year as it marks 100 years since women in the UK were given the right to vote as part of the Representation of the People’s Act.
At Wates we want to use this historic anniversary as a catalyst for promoting equality of opportunity for women across our industry. Throughout 2018 we are running a campaign called #100for100, where we will feature 100 women from across the business at all levels – providing a window into the daily working lives of our female colleagues and a platform for their views.
You can see the weekly instalments below, or follow us by searching for #100for100 on Twitter.
