The 2023 Women in Construction Summit ED&I (WIC Summit) will focus on several key themes, and will take place on 31 October at the Habtoor Grand Resort JBR in Dubai.

According to the Middle East Consultant (MEC) editorial team, the key focuses for the 2023 edition are: overcoming engrained prejudice and proactively solving the gender gap in the built environment. It will also shine a light on the topic of multi-cultural teams, and how construction firms can build diverse organisations to reap significant productivity benefits.

This year, the event focuses heavily on key issues such as fair and equal remuneration across ethnicities – and will present cogent arguments from some of the region’s most innovative and largest employers,” says Paul Godfrey, Head of Content at Middle East Consultant.
