Invitation to join the Council for the Built Environment (CBE) in advancing gender equality in the Built Environment! Theme: Overcoming Leadership Barriers. The Women Empowerment and Gender Equality (WEGE) committee was established to consider current policy gaps in women's economic empowerment and Government programmes that address them. This duly undertaken, the WEGE TCC would make proposals for improvement and implementation since public procurement is a lever for the empowerment of designated groups.
The WEGE TCC’s focus is to ensure an increase in women’s participation in the Built Environment in the economy of the country, and fair treatment in their areas of work. This TCC will consider the gaps in the current policy on women economic empowerment and in Government Programmes meant to address them in order to make proposals for improvement and implementation. The working committee shall also look into the resuscitation of the DPWI Gender (Women Empowerment) Council. The committee could be autonomous or merge with the first committee since public procurement is used as a lever for the empowerment of designated groups.
