St Hilliers recognises that the ratio of females in the Construction industry and the Defence sector is continually growing, however, there is still so much work to be done in the industry to bridge the gap and for women to feel as though they have a level playing field, regardless of gender.
Bias, whether deliberate or unconscious, still holds a lot of women back in the workplace. As a business, St Hilliers is committed to supporting mothers, wives, sisters, girlfriends, friends and colleagues today and every day.
In celebration of International Women’s Day, across our sites and offices nationally, we hosted a morning tea/BBQ with the women of St Hilliers, our subcontractors, and our clients. Pictured are some of the moments captured with our arms crossed proudly, showing us actively calling out gender bias, discrimination, and stereotyping.
We all need to take action to #breakthebias—on International Women’s Day and beyond.
