SECTOR FOREWORD Building and Construction The construction industry tends to be a consistent provider of jobs in many countries. It boosts job creation, and also encourages entrepreneurship. However, participation by women in the construction industry remains low. Support for women-owned construction businesses is now a matter of urgency. It is hoped that such initiatives will not only empower existing players in the sector but encourage those who are yet to make up their minds to take a giant leap into the building and construction industry in order to dispel the myth that it is a sector only for males. While such initiatives are truly honourable, there are women who have been thriving in the building and construction industry for ages; working hard to dispel the myths and notions that the sector is a man’s world. CEO Global would like to take off their ‘hard hats’ to you as you build the continent one brick at a time.
