As the nation celebrates the 100th anniversary of the female vote, Emma Clancy, NICEIC CEO, says that tackling gender inequality “must be a trade priority.”
Emma says that despite some progress in other industries, gender disparity is clear and prevalent in the electrical and wider construction sectors.
She says that women only make up around one per cent of the total workforce and the industry needs to broaden their approach to recruitment and the image they portray.
The Jobs for the Girls campaign, set up by NICEIC, has helped promote opportunities for women in the electrical industry and has brought greater focus to the issue.
Emma insists that young females need to view a career in the electrical industry as a viable, exciting option.
