For the third consecutive year, Linesight was proud to participate in the iWish event at Dublin's RDS, showcasing STEM career opportunities to over 3,000 teenage girls, inspiring the next generation of female leaders in the construction industry.
Grace McConnell, Associate Director at Linesight, participated in an enlightening session, entitled ‘10 Fast Facts About My Career ’, where she shared her unique journey into Quantity Surveying alongside female leaders from various industries and sectors. Each presented their own '10 Fast Facts,' offering a variety of experiences and highlighting the wide range of opportunities for women in construction. Grace discussed her career development within Linesight, contributing to a broader narrative of diversity and opportunity in the construction sector.
As a mentor within Linesight and the Society of Chartered Surveyors, Grace is instrumental in guiding and supporting women who are interested in pursuing career opportunities within the construction industry.
Linesight's engagement with the iWish initiative underscores our commitment to fostering an inclusive and diverse industry. Through our ’Women at Linesight’ network, we offer opportunities to women and men in our company to learn about, support and understand the issues facing women in growing their careers. The WiL initiative strives to advance opportunities for women to excel in our workforce and society, by focusing on education programmes, mentorship, showcasing talent and hosting speaker panel series.
