More and more young girls are considering careers in construction thanks to a number of pioneering women, who have already forged ahead in the industry. Not least the CIF’s former President Mirette Corboy, who served two terms in during the 1980s and 1990s.
These women have not only become leaders in their field of expertise, but also serve as role models for the generations of young women and girls coming behind them; the young women and girls who will eventually take the Irish construction industry into the future.
Today the Irish Times Women’s Podcast features three such women in a frank, funny and lively conversation about what it means to be a woman in the construction industry these days.
