Description

The APEC Women Builders Creating Inclusive Future project seeks to encourage APEC economies to take initiatives on assisting women in architecture and engineering industry to reduce wage gaps, foster related educational skills and grow female leaders. The project aims to empower more women on all aspects and diminish gender biases within the industry.

This publication is a collection of stories of female engineers and architects in the APEC region who have brought in talents and resources that contribute to innovation and creation in the building sector. These stories not only highlight women's power in a male-dominated industry, but also serve to present role models who can inspire young female generation to step in, stay in and step up.
