WiRED is RED’s internal women’s network, which forms part of the IDEA initiative. RED’s IDEA began in 2019, to promote an Inclusive, Diverse, Equitable and Accessible workplace for all employees.
WiRED have a mission of empowering women to lead courageously and achieve career success by cultivating a community of belonging, connection and growth.
We want to inspire young women within the industry with an interest in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) at a much younger age to educate them on the opportunities available in construction and engineering. The aim is to accelerate forward with truly breaking the bias, whilst introducing more women into the industry.
WiRED stands for ‘Women in RED’ – this name is used to demonstrate inclusivity of all women within RED, not just engineers and those with STEM backgrounds. Each employee plays an important role in creating a strong, efficient and inspirational organisation, and WiRED seeks to recognise this and provide a platform of growth and support for all.
Our members are committed to driving RED’s mission. We welcome involvement from all RED employees (not only females) to encourage, inspire and lead by example.
