I found it helpful to categorise the roles in demolition and they fall into three brackets: senior management; operations; support.
Looking down the roles within each category, I see no reason why women can not occupy every one of those jobs.
My company has run successful work experience engagements with local schools, held day release and work placements for students at local colleges and we are building relationships with universities to encourage graduates to consider careers with us.
We have had girls and young women show genuine interest in our industry and I hope that before too long we will be able to demonstrate a really tangible impact of our efforts to introduce demolition to a female audience.
Therefore we would like to draw your attention to our House Rules.
We must remove barriers which prevent girls from exploring careers in our demolition (and of course this applies largely to the construction industry in general). To combat these, early engagement with young women could include industry-based initiatives including demolition ambassadors going into schools, colleges and universities to promote careers in the industry.

For this integrative growth it is essential that the Vocational Education and Training (VET) system be revised towards a more inclusive approach, especially at related to sectors in which women are underrepresented, investing mainly in the qualifications and professional skills of those occupations with the greatest employment projection, such as activities derived from energy efficiency or ‘green’ construction in the case of construction, thus taking advantage of labour market opportunities.
