While the construction industry has traditionally been male-dominated, there has been an evolution in the sector in recent years which has seen an increased number of women entering the industry – and thriving. To further encourage this trend, the Construction Industry Development Board (cidb) has launched the inaugural Empowerment and Recognition of Women in Construction (ERWIC) Awards. In promoting information about the awards and its prestigious nominees, the cidb has named Crown Publication’s Construction World as the official media partner.
