The Top 100 Women was founded by Tamika Smith in 2017, established as a platform to featured and recognised women within the construction and development industry. Within the first 12 months, the #Top100Women was already hosting a community of 11,000 people across the world, which prompted further action. The Top 100 Women is now expanding to provide career development and industry support to women in their career journeys, within the construction sector.
To date, we know construction has one of the highest suicide rates and is one of the most male dominated segments. A lot of what has been founded, has been established on the basis to provide what we didn’t have upon finding the loopholes, and making our way through them.
