On 8 March this year, people around the world celebrated the achievements of women as part of International Women’s Day 2024.

At STARK UK, we took the opportunity to focus on some of the great work of women from across our business who shared their experience and insights into working what is still, unfortunately, a very male-dominated industry.

With women making up 15% of the UK construction industry, as per the 2023 figures shared by the Federation of Master Builders, things have improved in recent years but we can still do more to show women the benefits of pursuing a career in the building trades.

Here is a reminder of some of the brilliant news we were able to share…

“We are thrilled to be recognised for our commitment to diversity and inclusion, by being awarded Silver membership with Women into Construction 2024; it is a significant milestone for our organisation,” said Helene Bradley, STARK UK Director of Communications.
