“Dialogues with Women in Construction” held on Dec 3, 2019 at the British Council Hall in Dar es Salaam.
Those few women who have decision-making positions in the
construction industry must empower young women by creating pathways to
firmly embed new female graduates into the industry. “Networking and
Collaboration: Key to Making a Dynamic Impact” was the theme for our
first talk in the series “Dialogues with Women in Construction” held on
Dec 3, 2019 at the British Council Hall in Dar es Salaam.
Special thanks go to our guest speakers Dr. Nathalie Jean-Baptiste, architect and urban
planner, Head of the CityLab Dar es Salaam at Ardhi University, and
Sayuni Bupe Mwamanenge who is a registered interior designer and the
Managing Director of Elevate Design Studio, Dar es Salaam, which is an
innovative consulting firm that specializes in interior design. Special
thanks also go to our program sponsor, Simba Cement Company PLC who
provided the resources to make these important events possible. A
loving and collegial recognition goes to all volunteer mentors who took
time out from their busy lives to help a new generation of women break
into the construction industry.
“Dialogues with Women in Construction” has the goal of creating a
platform for women in the industry and the next generation of
construction industry leaders to share their stories, build their
networks and exchange their ideas, and share their perceptions on
different issues affecting women in their work places. Above all,
“Dialogues with Women in Construction” is a platform that celebrates the
success of women in our industry and showcases women role models for
young professional to learn from.
