The Shortlist

Celebrating the people and successes of the industry

Following on from our LinkedIn live event, we’re excited to announce the full short list for the Top 100 Influential Women in Construction Awards. 

The list and winners will be announced during an exclusive event, on 27 October 2022 in Manchester.

Congratulations to the shortlist for the Top 100 Influential Women in Construction Awards. The independent panel of judges said it was an extremely difficult decision to shortlist due to the quality and number of entries for the awards. Below is the full shortlist. We look forward to celebrating with you all on Thursday 27th October 2022. 

Whilst you may not be shortlisted the Top 100 list will be released on the night so be sure to book your tickets to celebrate to achievement of all the amazing women that were nominated for these awards.

A point to note, the Top 100 is not a ranked list, but a celebration of the 100 people that the judges determine are the most influential in construction.

If you have been nominated but haven’t made the shortlist, you may still be part of the 100 list which will be announced on the night.
