The call for nominations for the Women in Construction Awards resulted in an influx of 42 nominations. A panel of judges, which consisted of 14 global industry experts, identified 12 finalists, representative of three different African countries.

“Nights like these would not be possible if we did not have the support of sponsors, I would like to thank our sponsors Aecom, Power Group and Neuroleadership for their support. The Women in Construction Awards are important as they create visibility for women and those organisations supporting and shaping the role of women in the construction, cement and concrete industry. I am excited as we’ve had winners from South Africa and the DRC. ” said Award director Tanitha Jolly.
