We are aware that Continuous Professional Development, or CPD, is a key part of the lives of any individual working within our industry and hence,
we collaborate with a small network of coaches and experts to provide access to affordable first-class training and to help our network further their careers.
In addition to this, we actively develop initiatives and projects, with the help of our members,
to raise awareness of the opportunities to be found in construction and to engage the next generation of built environment shappers.

London and the South East is the largest of all the NAWIC UK & Ireland regions.

With 80% of the overall membership, we are committed to transforming the industry on to one which reflects the diversity of our society, shifting the agenda from gender to ability and putting an end to stereotypes.

As well as organising a range of networking, training and personal development events where our members have the opportunity to meet each other and grow their network, we also collaborate with a variety of diversity-driven organisations by partnering on events, sharing best practice and opportunities.

Those include Women into Construction, The Young Women Trust, RIBA, AFC, Fluid Mentoring, Built by Us, Women on the Tools, Built by Both and Women in Architecture among others. And support events such as London Build, WICE Awards, FT and WIC Summit


The team behind the ever ambitious programme of activities within our region is formed of volunteers who share the vision of the NAWIC founders
and want to create a more diverse industry by highlighting the work of their peers, supporting their development and raising an interest  among younger audiences.
