GCCA launches ‘Global Cement and Concrete Industry Women’s Network’ for promoting gender diversity
On International Women’s Day, the Global Cement and Concrete Association (GCCA) has announced the launch of a ‘Global Cement and Concrete Industry Women’s Network.’ Launched by GCCA Cement Director, Claude Loréa the sector initiative aims to establish a network of women leaders and experts in the cement and concrete industry and its suppliers. This is with the aim of promoting gender diversity.
Started informally at the beginning of the week, the network has already attracted more than 100 women to register. With the shared mission of promoting concrete as the sustainable building material of choice, the group is a place for women working in the cement and concrete industry to share content, thoughts, and ideas amongst peers. It aims to establish a network of women leaders and experts in the cement and concrete sector and its suppliers, in order to ensure gender diversity, for example in conference panels. This will be done by providing a ready network of talent and experience, creating a culture of diversity across the industry.
