UK: The Global Cement and Concrete Association (GCCA) has launched a video in recognition of the positive impact of women in the cement and concrete industry. The ‘call-to-action’ video also advances gender equality, in celebration of International Women’s Day.
Chief executive officer Dinah McLeod said, “As we help build the sustainable world of tomorrow, ensuring gender balance across all levels will encourage innovation and the forward thinking that we need to meet our climate goals. Our industry contributes to all UN Sustainable Development Goals including gender equality. We encourage more women to enter our industry to help shape its future and tackle the biggest challenge of our time – climate change.”
GCCA gender equality initiatives include the Global Cement and Concrete Industry Women’s Network and ‘Lean in Circles.’ The Women’s Network holds meetings and discussions to bring together women across GCCA member companies. Lean in Circles connects women across its networks in addressing specific issues. Women across the sector are encouraged to join. With these, the association aims to provide support, build confidence and ultimately increase diversity in the sector.
