The first national Women in Roofing Conference took place in March 2016 and was extremely well received by the people who attended.
Following the conference a focus group met to appoint a chair, vice chair and sub-groups considering:
Promoting the role of women in the industry, training and future events.
The strategic group, which includes Livia Williams, Lynn Street (Chair), Kate Whatley (Vice-Chair) have developed our Mission Statement.
I am very proud and excited to be involved in this initiative and to help develop ways to assist individuals in their roles within the industry.

Our Mission Statement
Women in Roofing aims to promote and support advancement and employment within the roofing industry enabling both individuals and businesses to realise their full potential, create value and make a difference.
We will deliver on that commitment by creating a platform which is accessible to everyone based on the values of fairness, inclusion and respect.
Our Values and Goals
Women in Roofing has been brought together by like minded individuals working in all aspects of the roofing industry.
Over the next decade the roofing industry is facing a huge decline of skilled professionals in all aspects of our industry.
Working with other roofing associations we are an additional voice to help to inspire, foster and develop individuals to ensure that the next generation of our work force is in place to cope with the future construction requirements needed for the economic growth in the UK.
By creating awareness through campaigns, case studies and training we aim to show that our industry is a profession to be proud of and create a blue print for future generations.
