When you think of any male-dominated industry, construction is probably the first job that comes to mind.
Of all the people who work in construction, women comprise only a small 10.3 percent of the workforce. Even smaller is the number of female construction workers on the front lines of a job site—there is only one woman for every 100 employees on the field. Considering that women make up 47 percent of all employed individuals, this means that the construction industry is only benefiting from about 1.25 percent of the total female workforce.
These are several factors that explain this enormous gender gap, from unconscious gender bias to the lack of adequate training to overall perceptions of women working in construction, which is traditionally a male-dominated career. Despite these barriers, women continue to build their path in the industry.
Currently, there are around 600 female engineers and technicians holding positions in both of XCMG's production and research and development departments.
"At XCMG, we stress diversity and are committed to establishing an inclusive culture that values every employee equally. We are very honored and proud to have so many talented women working in the construction machinery industry who've made significant contributions towards XCMG's leading position in technological innovation and manufacturing, as well as pushing the company to do better and better." noted Wang Min, the Chairman of XCMG.
How are women rising up in construction in 2020? As construction was expected to create almost 2 million new jobs by 2021, companies are looking to recruit more women to bring their skill sets into the field.
