At all locations, girls aged 8 and above will get to hear from the following female keynote speakers:
Ruby Bhogal, finalist of the Great British Bakeoff, discussing her role as a project manager on the London Underground
Fabienne Viala, Chair of Bouygues Construction
Carole Ditty: Legal Director Bouygues
and they will also be able to visit construction companies who will provide interactive group activities and demonstrations as well as real opportunities to find our more about construction through work experience offers and apprenticeships. This celebratory event will also give young women a better understanding of the wide variety of roles available in the industry.
