The Importance of Gender Diversity in the Workplace

Jenny Malem
Faithful+Gould and Atkins are striving to create a good gender balance based on merit. The impact of this can be seen through our three-year Middle East Graduate Development Programme, the intake of which currently stands at 45% female.

The Women’s Business Network was launched in August 2014 in order to retain and attract women into Faithful+Gould, ensuring we have a more positive gender balance in senior roles moving forward. It continues to garner strong support from internal and external stakeholders, all looking to promote gender diversity balance in a traditionally male-dominated industry.

In support of International Women's day, colleagues from Faithful+Gould and Atkins share their stories.

Campbell Gray, managing director - Middle East, commented: "The projects we produce and manage in this industry are for everyone to use, whether you’re on the metro, staying in a hotel or flying through an airport, it’s important we understand how to deliver those projects for everyone who uses them and that’s why having effective mixed teams are vitally important especially to an organisation like ours."
