    Breaking New Ground on Gender Equality

    May 23, 2018


    More than 30 teammates represented Balfour Beatty at the 2018 Groundbreaking Women in Construction Conference in San Francisco, CA.

    This year, a record 700 attendees turned out to participate in a variety of panelist and discussion groups that specifically address the unique challenges and experiences that women face in the industry, with a focus on workable solutions and outcomes that can be applied in the workplace.

    Our very own California Division President Brian Cahill served as a panelist in a discussion that explored the critical role of men in the advancement of women in construction. Brian spoke about some of the wonderful women that are a part of the Balfour Beatty team and reiterated our company pledge to continue to support and encourage an inclusive working environment with equal opportunities for growth and success.

    Thank you to everyone who attended and participated in the critical conversations.

    We’d like to extend a special thank you to Tamara Yang and Maggie Blondin for their outstanding coordination and leadership. As well as everyone who took a turn volunteering at the Balfour Beatty booth!
