The 5th annual Women in Construction Awards Gala Dinner was hosted on 24 May 2017 co-located with the African Construction and Totally Concrete Expo
at the Gallagher Convention Centre, Johannesburg, South Africa
The exclusive Gala Dinner of just over 200 guests was a collaborative platform dedicated to recognising excellence in Africa within the construction, cement and concrete industries.
The Awards categories have recognise those women who are Pioneers in Innovation
within the built environment as well as identifying those "Young entrepreneur/rising stars''
- who have put themselves out there and have been identified as the ones "to watch" as they get a foothold within their sector.
The awards have also acknowledge organisations which have stepped up and developed women's roles through innovative training programmes and have demonstrated commitment to developing the careers of women in the industry.
This year's awards celebration was attended by senior-level executives, key decision-makers and suppliers, within the construction, cement and concrete industries.
