Fortel Nijjer : Role of Women in Engineering

The need for greater diversity, including female representation, in the construction industry is well documented.

Anna represents a real success story and hopes that she can set an example for others.

She said: “Everything about working on a site like this interests me, I am fascinated by the process and the work that goes into getting a job of this size done right.

“I think this passion comes across to the team onsite and I have never had any negative reaction due to my gender.

“In fact, I have seen the opposite, the team listens to me and respects me based on my achievements, experience and attitude.

“I would encourage any female looking to get into this industry to do so, there is nothing stopping you if you work hard and are committed.”

Anna became a mother in 2020 and has returned to the job she loves with a retained focus on improvement and professional development.

Amar Sandhawalia, Fortel Group Chief Operating Officer, said: “Anna has shown talent, determination and professionalism throughout her time on this project and we are delighted to see her receive recognition for that.

“Increasing diversity is a top priority across the Fortel Group and Anna has shown that progress can and will continue to be made in welcoming women into the world of construction.”
