Here, MECN talks to ten women across the construction industry to hear their thoughts on balancing work environments; recruitment practices in companies; building ties with academia; and shattering the glass ceiling.

Cristina Esposito, director – Construction Projects, Drees & Sommer

“If you made the choice to join this vibrant industry, you are already brave enough to also speak up and share thoughts and opinions, so do it. But share them when you really have something to say. Be inquisitive, and above all be prepared to critically discuss your position. And be aware that there are women working hard to make space for you too. If we look back at where we started from, things can only get better and better. We as female industry leaders should take part in the discussion and foster change within our own organisations as much as possible. Whenever I can, I partake in panels and group discussions as well as offer my support to female colleagues as a mentor or friend, and carry their concerns to management for review.”
