Championing Diversity in the Industry
We are privileged to have Suzie’s expertise and in-depth knowledge of both our practice and the industry itself. As passionate advocates of learning and development, we support all of our team members in their career goals.
The construction industry is often viewed as a male-dominated sector – which then contributes to an ongoing issue of encouraging young women to enter the field.
Thankfully, the industry is embracing change – and as we appoint more and more women to leadership positions, we plan further contribute to this change, creating a more positive balance in the AEC industry.
Simon Jones, Group Director commented on Suzie’s promotion:
“The practice has always been at the forefront of championing equality and diversity, and Suzie is testament to our commitment to creating greater inclusion and value to our teams. With a strong focus on internal development, we actively encourage personal development across all specialisms as well as facilitating mentorships both internally and externally.
“These important approaches to development have helped to further the skills of our teams, and Suzie is a prime example, having developed from an Office Manager to this senior level position, Suzanne is indeed an asset to Corstorphine & Wright.”
