We’re delighted to announce that Partner and Head of Environmental, Anne Johnstone, has been shortlisted at The Women in Construction & Engineering Awards in the Best Woman in Environment & Sustainability category.
The Women in Construction & Engineering Awards aims to make the Construction and Engineering industries more enticing to women. To create role models for women considering a career in these sectors, while encouraging companies to employ and train more women in these industries.
Anne joined Malcolm Hollis in 2016, tasked with establishing a new, in-house specialist Environmental team to support the business’s core building surveying services. In just 18 months she has made significant progress in broadening our service offering to existing clients and attracting in significant new business. Throughout her career Anne has challenged, sometimes deeply entrenched, opinions about women in the workplace by being well prepared to do her job, respectful of other people and willing to stand up for herself and others. That has frequently meant knowing she is going to be the only, or one of few, women in the room (or site!) and being prepared to turn up anyway. At the same time she has nurtured younger women, supporting them in their career development and pushing them forward. In her role as UKELA chair she has supported female staff members in their quest for fair pay, championing them and representing their case to the rest of the Board.
Anne commented: I’m over the moon to be a finalist in the Women in Construction & Engineering Awards in the Best Woman in Environment & Sustainability category. Thanks to Malcolm Hollis for all the support!
