Gender gap persists

I was disappointed to see the announcement of the new board of directors for the Winnipeg Construction Association on March 8 — International Women's Day.

The fact that not a single woman is part of a 20-member board in 2014 is really concerning, particularly given the many competent female engineers involved in the construction industry in Manitoba.

It's evident the "equality door" that the article Closing the gender gap in Manitoba (March 8) refers to is still quite heavy -- we may need to use a bulldozer to remove it.
