Abstract [en]

In the representations of majority construction industry associated with the male-dominated field, women are often highly underrepresented. This study seeks to identify restrictions on women's access to the construction industry. These constraints may be due to poor image of the construction industry, tough and inflexible working circumstances, the environment within construction organizations and the lack of acquaintance, etc. Secondly, possible strategies for the overcoming of the existing obstacles, including sharing the experience of the success stories, will be investigated. Finally, the overall picture of the current situation of opportunities for female professionals within the field will be presented.
