Celebration of Women in the Built Environment

Chicks with Bricks is a proactive network that connects young women in the construction industry to their female peers and role models in construction. Since 2005, we have been committed to running events bringing members together to network and communicate – Architects, Developers, Planners, Lawyers, Portfolio Advisors, Tradeswomen, Engineers, Bankers, Academics, Policymakers, Designers, Manufacturers, Contractors, Surveyors, Project Managers and Media. Events bring 200-400 women together for drinks and debate led by well known industry figures at exclusive venues.

The event is aimed at women of all ages and professions within the construction industry. We see it as an opportunity for networking, discussion and celebration of women in this sector. There are a number of bodies representing women in construction; our aim is to bring them and their members together. It is because of our ethos of creating a more inclusive and cohesive network that we have support from The National Association of Women in Construction, the RIBA (including the Diversity Panel), RICS, The Construction Industry Council and Women in Architecture to just name a few.
