In traditionally male-dominated industries, such as construction, leaders can make an impact in at least two important areas: mentoring women and helping develop and implement strategies for mitigating bias and discrimination. Gender bias won’t vanish overnight; it’s an ongoing effort. A construction company that has positive mentors and gender equality program is likely to attract more female applicants at all levels, in addition to distinguishing itself as an industry pioneer.
