Built by Both is a networking organisation launched by a small group of graduates from Barratt Developments, to promote gender parity across the built environment.
The main objective is to inspire young women to embark on careers within the built environment and show credit to those already working in our industry. We aim to promote this initiative via educational experience days for students and social evening events for young women to meet inspirational role models, to show a united ambition to change the face of the industry and promote careers in construction, housebuilding, real estate, the trades, architecture, engineering, surveying and beyond, as rewarding and lucrative options for young people.
We currently have our next event planned for Thursday 17 November, which will include both the Student Experience Day and INSPIRE//NETWORK, both of which still have places and tickets available. We will be joined by guest speakers:
Jean Venables CBE - Civil Engineer, First Female President of the ICE 2008 – 2009
Danna Walker - Found of Built by Us, Director of Architects for Change and FLUID Diversity Mentoring
Louise Brooke-Smith - Property and Planning Advisor, First Female President of RICS 2014 – 2015
Young Ambassador of The Prince's Trust
