JOMAS Associates are delighted to announce that founder and Managing Director, Roni Savage, was named Best Consultant at the European Women in Construction and Engineering (WICE) Awards, which was held at Hilton Park Lane on May 21 2019.
Selected out of over 400 nominees, 200 finalists, and 27 Category Winners, Roni was also named one of two Most Distinguished Winners for 2019.
Women represent only 11% of the construction workforce in the UK and most of these jobs are office based. When it comes to women in engineering only 9% of UK engineering professionals are women, 18% in Spain, 26% in Sweden and 20% in Italy.
The aim of the European WICE Awards is to make these industries more enticing to women, and to create role models for women considering a career in these sectors, while encouraging companies to employ and train more women in these industries.
Roni said “The awards ceremony was surreal. I am delighted to have won two awards – totally unexpected. I celebrate this achievement, not only on a personal level, but also because of the platform it gives me in the campaign for diversity. It is such an honour that the judges saw something in me and my story which impressed them enough to not only select me as Best Consultant out of so many deserving women, but also, as a Distinguished Winner. I look forward to continuing to serve my clients at Jomas with my full attention, while inspiring future generations.”
