Women in BIM is a group that unites people with a passion for technology and collaboration in construction, and responds to experiences that we have all had, of exclusion or under-representation in our industry. While we recognise that an intersectional approach to diversity in the industry is vital, for this programme, we have chosen to focus on gender identity. We continue to support our friends and allies that address the other various aspects of inclusion.
The Women in BIM Mentoring Scheme comes from the core values of our organisation. We strive to elevate the image of women and people of minority genders in our niche in the industry. We try to source opportunity for exposure - we want to see you - our members - on stages, talking about your work and asserting your views and experiences. One of the ways to do that is by creating spaces for more Women in BIM to connect via our networking events. In the end of 2019, we decided to take a step further. We really want to foster stable and productive connections for our members within the industry.
