POSITIVE ROLE MODEL AWARD FOR LGBT –
Sharon has become a role model as a woman and LGBT professional in the Construction industry – two aspects that have been desperately lacking for many years. She is a Chartered Quantity Surveyor who has worked on many high profile projects in both Yorkshire and Australia. Sharon is currently Sector Commercial Lead within the growing Carillion Services Projects division, where she has commercial responsibility for project work from 8 of their Facilities Management clients. In 2016, Sharon founded, and became Global Co-Chair of the Carillion LGBT support network – Connect. Their network has joined with other construction industry companies in an LGBT working group called Building Equality with the aim of improving the industry for all. Sharon also co-founded a social enterprise called STEER, which provides industry mentors for built environment students to bridge the gap between education and industry.
SHARING IS CARING!
