Awards Overview

Construction has traditionally been thought of as a male-dominated industry and if you were asked to name a female role model in the sector, you would probably be hard-pressed to think of anyone. Thanks to the evolving concerted efforts to encourage women into the sector, today women are increasingly assuming positions once considered ‘male’ roles, and overcoming outdated stereotypes.

Enterprise development and empowerment of the emerging sector is core to the cidb’s strategy towards fulfilling and implementing an integrated strategy for the reconstruction, growth and development of the construction industry. The cidb has identified women as a critical target for development and has chosen to celebrate and encourage this target through an industry awards process.

During 2019, a name was developed for these awards:

Empowerment and Recognition of Women in Construction Awards

The aim of the Empowerment and Recognition of Women in Construction Awards (ERWIC Awards) is to encourage excellence among women and commitment among stakeholders to support women in their professional growth and development. It also aims to promote role models for women in lower grade construction categories, and motivate women in the higher grades.
