Offering delegates the chance to meet key manufacturers, develop new product skills and knowledge as well as access peer support networks, Women Installers Together will acknowledge and celebrate women throughout the industry. With women accounting for 7% of the sector’s workforce – 1% of all plumbers and just one in 300 gas engineers – this national conference for women within the plumbing and heating industry will provide empowering workshops.These sessions will include:

  • A session on dealing with people/customers in difficult situations
  • The importance of managing how others see you – vital when women are only 1 in every 100 within the industry
  • Making it in a Man’s World delivered by Hattie Hasan

A special guest speaker will also talk about resilience, followed by an opportunity for installers to meet sponsoring manufacturers and discuss products and solutions. Francine Wickham, Fernox Global Marketing Director, said: “Fernox is continually looking to support equal opportunities within the plumbing and heating sector. By sponsoring this event, we hope to encourage more women into the industry and celebrate the inspiring achievements of female plumbing and heating installers.”To register for the event – which also includes a series of exciting giveaways on the day – visit https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/women-installers-together-tickets-34619896041.For more information on the Women Installers Together Conference, visit http://stopcocks.uk/event/women-installers-together/
