Women in Roofing Join Forces with the Institute of Roofing

The Women in Roofing organisation is now operating under the umbrella of The Institute of Roofing.  

Following a recent presentation to the IoR Board of Directors, the Board has approved Women in Roofing for the tremendous role that they have played in the roofing industry over the last three years and has unanimously agreed for WinR to operate as part of the Institute of Roofing.
Call for Change
This is a significant step in the roofing industry and represents a call for change within other roofing trade federations for adoption of policies on issues around Fairness, Inclusion and Respect, more women in the boardroom, reducing the pay gap and other equal opportunities action.
There is also the opportunity for harmonisation between the IOR and WINR membership - membership of Women in Roofing will automatically be awarded to any member of the Institute who requests it. New individuals wishing to formally join Women in Roofing would be equally given the opportunity to apply for Institute or Roofing’ professional membership. 
The Institute of Roofing and Women in Roofing will be running regular CPD and regional meetings and events in a joint effort to engage with members and offer support with professional development,  networking opportunities and a platform for consultation and discussions for like-minded individuals. 

An open invitation has been extended to attend the Institute of Roofing 36th Annual General Meeting at the NEC Birmingham on Thursday 20th October where you be able to find out more about the Institute of Roofing and Women in Roofing, and how you can become a member.
