Women in BIM has launched a new Mentor Scheme to support its members with the aim of achieving true collaboration and encouraging the exchange of knowledge and skills.

One of Women in BIM’s core goals has always been to support and inspire, as well as engage women into taking on BIM-related roles.

With the launch of the new Women in BIM Mentoring Scheme, it aims to provide the structures needed to lead more women into the exciting and growing world of BIM, helping them climb the ladder to reach the roles they have set their eyes on and to see them succeed.

Women in BIM Global Chair, Rebecca De Cicco commented on the new scheme: “As leaders in BIM, we are seeing that, globally, there are still issues with skills shortages and resources for digital construction. With the release of ISO 19650 and BS EN ISO 19650 series in 2018, it is now even more important than ever before that skills levels in this area are increased to support projects globally.

“This new mentoring scheme has been developed to unite people with a passion for technology and construction. One of the biggest obstacles to BIM adoption is the lack of in-house expertise; our new scheme is a direct response to this, positioned to make a positive impact on the much-needed growth of BIM skills in our industry.”
