During the last months, the Icaro partners UniBO (University of Bologna) and ACE (Architects’ Council of Europe) conducted a survey aiming to track the main barriers for women and youngsters who would like to approach a career path in the construction sector. The survey has been concluded with 100 participants, all considered valid and including also non-professionals in the sector.
We publish the full analysis of the survey results, from which is evident that, as claimed by several participants in the survey, further role models are needed in order to make the sector more inclusive. For this reason, the Icaro team is planning an awareness campaign intending to attract more women and youngsters to the industry. The team will run a series of interviews to key figures in construction (architects, trainers, as well as students) in the following weeks.
