In this show we blew away some misconceptions about the Fenestration and construction industry. Why is is a great industry for women? Why, when there is a skills gap and employers are having trouble filling roles, are they not seeking out women to step in? We also learn about the different roles available from design to fitting and what a varied career it can be.

We also have ideas for you if you’re an employer in the Fenestration or wider construction industry on how you can you tap into the wealth of talent of our school and college leavers.

Bridging the gap between eduction and the fenestration (glazing industry) is a passion for the founder of Fit For Trade, Joanne Taylor. Such an inspiration to have in the studio, a true driving force for helping her industry and young people.

Thanks also to Maxine Benson of the internationally renowned organisation EveryWoman who represent and support over 20,000 women in business. The Natwest Everywoman awards are now in their 16th Year and we heard from Maxine about how to enter these awards, tips for entering awards in general and why entering your business is great for your business even if you’re not a winner.

Thanks as always to our co-hosts Laura Lawrence and Kelly Culver and Joe for his production support.
