2021 has started off as a great year for Women in BIM, with the launch of our new website, the release of the 2020 WIB Annual Report and our second round of the WIB Mentor Scheme. Plus there are more very exciting activities coming your way.
We would like to share these updates with our Members and supporters, as well as give you a tour of the new online WIB Member Resource Zone.
Marie will give an overview of our communications plans for 2021 and a behind the scenes look at our new website.
And something we know all our Members want to hear, Andy will give an update on the UK BIM Policy and framework and some of the new support documents which have been published by the UK BIM Alliance for the implementation of ISO 19650.
Please join Rebecca and her special guests on April 1, 2021.
