Women in BIM have launched a database of women around the world who work in BIM.
The database will support women who work in this sector of the construction industry and act as a resource for learning. The database also gives women the opportunity to share their experience and offer their services as speakers and experts.
Speaking at the launch of Digital Construction Week, Rebecca de Cicco, Chair of Women in BIM, said “Women who work in the construction industry benefit from the support of their peers. Women in BIM was set up with this aim in mind. Our first task is to work out how many women exist in these roles, where they are located and how can we put them in touch with each other. We invite all women working in BIM worldwide to join our network.”
