Women in Construction (WiC Wales)

Women in Construction (WiC) Wales is an innovative online and face to face network supporting women working in construction, manual trades and the built environment who live or work in the convergence areas of Wales.

If you are a woman who is an apprentice, self-employed, or working for a large contractor, a small specialist company or an organisation with a construction management and development function, join WiC Wales!  If you are currently employed in another sector and interested in making as career change to train and work in construction then we want to hear from you.

The network provides:

  • Face to face events
  • An online meeting place
  • Encouragement to progress in construction careers
  • Access to mentors to support your goals
  • Links to training and development opportunities
  • Contact with employers and training providers
  • A community of action to reach and inspire more women

The network hosts events across Wales enabling women to connect and exchange their knowledge. Support is provided to access training and encourage job progression, particularly into the fields of renewable energy and sustainable technology.

About Us

The aim of the WAVE programme is to understand and ‘interrupt’ the ways in which gender pay inequalities are consistently reproduced through occupational segregation in employment and self employment, through the ways in which ‘women’s work is contracted’ and through the operation of pay systems.


The WAVE programme has now concluded after 3 successful years.  There are still loads of fantastic organisations that you can get involved with, take a look!
