2018’s PCA Best Practice Awards took place last Friday 15th June at the Slate, University of Warwick, celebrating and rewarding those in the industry, including the Women of Waterproofing.
The PCA Best Practice Awards brought together 160 members, contractors, designers and experts for an evening of celebration, recognition and networking. The event saw Women of Waterproofing rewarded for ‘overcoming challenges in an innovative way, offering a solution to ensuring that we are attracting, recruiting and retaining talented women into the full range of roles and at all levels within the structural waterproofing industry and demonstrating engagement with a range of third parties.’
Delta Membrane Systems recognises the importance of reflecting the society it serves in its workforce. Delta is working hard to increase the representation of female CSSW qualified Waterproofing Design Specialists. Its diversity and inclusion strategies include offering unconscious bias CSSW Training at the Delta Epping facilities in Essex and within the company’s diversity and inclusion five-year plan offering Waterproofing Design Specialist Apprenticeships.
A range of initiatives aimed at tackling the gender gap have also been initiated by Delta Membranes, including supporting and sponsoring the Women of Waterproofing Networking Group and unconscious bias training for all staff members across the business.
