BIG Alliance recently worked with Lendlease to provide a ‘Women in the Workplace’ session for students of Maria Fidelis Catholic School. Lendlease hosted students at their London offices and the session provided an insight into the business and the type of roles available within the construction and engineering industries.
As well as networking with female employees, students were given the opportunity to take part in a leadership activity, skills-testing activity, and a Q&A session with Lendlease CEO of International Operations, Dan Labbad.
Feedback from both students and volunteers was overwhelmingly positive, with volunteers grateful to “pass along some knowledge and share experience” and help students by “providing a positive message about their future”. Students were equally inspired, with one saying “I learnt that more women should come forward for jobs they are passionate about” and another thankful for the chance to “speak to inspirational women”.
