Today, alongside the rest of the World, Story Contracting are celebrating International Women’s Day 2023 and supporting their campaign to #EmbraceEquity.
At Story everyone is equally valued and respected, and we understand that our diversity within the company is something that makes us stronger.
Combining both the celebrations of International Women’s Day and Women in Construction Week, the team on site at Ravenscraig were joined by 15 young girls from local secondary schools to teach them about different paths available into our industry.
Carolyn Roberts, Assurance Manager, Luisa Hendry, Senior Engineering Geologist and Kayla Miller, Apprentice Engineer delivered a presentation on their roles within the business, to highlight the variety of work involved within different sectors of the industry.
Following on from this, Max Klimov, Scheme Project Manager led the girls around the Ravenscraig site, giving them an insight into one of the projects on the ground currently.
Meanwhile, throughout our offices colleagues joined a session facilitated by Emma Porter, Managing Director (Story Plant) where together they watched Amy Cuddy’s TED talk about body language and confidence, followed by a healthy discussion around the topics that had been addressed.
