Whitepaper: Women On the Tools

Dulux Academy is proud to support the largest online construction based community in the UK, On the Tools, to highlight the key issues affecting female workers, and how the construction and painting and decorating industries can adapt to make this a more attractive career choice for women.


 

Women On the Tools was designed to uncover what it is like to be a woman in construction in 2022.

It not only identifies and challenges the inequalities encountered by women on-site, but celebrates what can be a fantastic career option for many. This groundbreaking Whitepaper from On the Tools represents the views of tradeswomen, tradesmen, consumers, industry bodies and construction brands, gathered over a series of focus groups, in-depth interviews and targeted surveys.

Topics covered include:

  • entering the industry
  • progression and career opportunities
