Bopcons has been one of the leading construction companies promoting gender equality. In a traditionally male dominated industry we now not only have female Site Agents but also female Machine Operators, which is certainly a first for a South African construction company. We have also promoted our first lady Brenda Siobo to the position of Director in November 2018.
When we recruit candidates for our Learnership Programmes, we insist that 50 % are female.
In August 2014 Bopcons received two 3rd Place awards at The Gender Mainstreaming Awards sponsored by PWC. The categories were "Equal Representation & Participation" and "Woman on Boards".
In August 2015 BopCons again entered the PWC sponsored Gender Mainstreaming Awards. This time round we performed even better amidst greater competition achieving 3rd place positions in the following three private sector categories: “Diversity and Transformation”, “Economic Empowerment” and “Equal Representation and Participation”.
