The event was attended by team members from the business' supply chain and logistics, customer service, health and safety, and cement plant teams. It included a wide range of discussion topics and presentations, from PPE and welfare facilities to profiling role models and opportunities to attract more women to pursue careers at Tarmac and in the wider construction industry.

The new Women in Cement group is one of a number of diversity and inclusion initiatives across Tarmac. The company has partnered with organisations including the Taylor Bennett Foundation, Skillforce, and the Career Transition Partnership, which all focus on supporting people from diverse backgrounds into jobs.

“I’m extremely proud with how this first event went and it’s very exciting to see the interest and engagement we’ve got from all areas and levels of the business," said Josie Morrissey, Environmental Coordinator in Tarmac’s Cement and Lime business.
