Director Andrea Hilton and associates Katie Parsons and Ewa Elder have recently starred in a video for Women in Social Housing, entitled ‘Change the Face of Housing’. The video seeks to promote the diverse range of careers available in housing and construction to young girls in schools, showcasing the opportunities available to them and highlighting that anyone, regardless of academic ability, can find a rewarding career. The DVD will be shown at schools nationwide, along with a series of presentations in schools by WISH members, an interactive quiz and fun giveaways. The video can be found here.
WISH was founded in 1998 as a way for women in social housing and construction to network and progress professionally within their sectors. The organisation also encourages more female graduates and school leavers to choose careers within the industry.
