Project Summary

Last year, APEC Economic Leaders came together to discuss bridging the gender pay gap and thereby increasing opportunities for women and girls.

However, the latest ILO Global Wage report found that women still earn 20% less than men. In 2016, women accounted for 36 percent of newly licensed architects.

This year, APEC is dedicated to diminishing this inequality by increasing the participation of women in non-traditional sectors such as the building sector.

For example, the average architect’s annual salary (USD$77,799) is much higher than APEC economies’ average annual income (USD$21,022, excluding PNG and Brunei). In addition, women in architecture and engineering earn 27% less than men. Therefore, this project seeks to encourage APEC economies to take measures on developing women’s talent in the building sector to reduce wage gaps, foster vocational and skills education for women and increase the number of women in leadership positions.

The project will address an APEC priority: “Women, SMEs and Inclusive Growth”. A survey, a workshop, and a self-funded seminar will identify hindrances and how best to empower women in the building sector.

Moreover, the ultimate goal is to create principles that produces inclusive growth within the entire APEC region.

Relevance

Relevance – Region: This ‘women in the building sector’ project addresses the APEC priority of “Women, SMEs and Inclusive Growth” and is intended to set up an example for connecting people and building inclusive growth within the entire APEC region.

From 2016 to 2018, APEC Leaders emphasized the importance of the economic empowerment of women, bridging the gender gap, and thereby increasing opportunities for women towards fully realizing their potential. With acknowledging that greater economic participation by women spurs economic growth, APEC leaders encourage economies to promote women's career development, strengthen women's access to STEM education, and address barriers to women’s economic participation.

However, the latest ILO Global Wage report found that women still earn 20% less than men. The job search engine “Glassdoor” indicates that the average architect salaries annually USD$77,799. And the APEC economies’ (except Brunei & PNG) average annual income is USD$21,022 based on the WORDDATA.INFO statistics. In addition, the World Economic Forum reports that women in architecture and engineering earn 27% less than men.

The National Council of Architectural Registration Boards reports that women accounted for 36 percent of newly licensed architects in 2016. Furthermore, in 2017 World Architecture 100 indicated that only two firms have management teams that are more than 50% female, 16 firms have no women at all in senior positions and 10% have women occupying the highest-ranking jobs.

The gender pay gap represents social injustice. All economies should try to accelerate progress towards gender equality. Therefore, this project involves a questionnaire, an intensive and constructive workshop to understand APEC economies’ current situation in the building sector, including issues on the current situation of the gender pay gap and gender segregation within recruiting and promoting process, as well as the roots of gender gap and segregation.

A Principles on Women Builders Creating Inclusive Future resulting from this project will seek to address these issues as a region and will have sustained benefits for all APEC economies that are promoting women’s participation in higher-wage and high growth sectors. This project is involved in women’s skills and capacity building in the building sector. We will link with the HRDWG to empower women in the APEC region. 

Relevance – Eligibility and Fund Priorities: We will conduct one workshop and one seminar to meet the General Project Account’s eligibility criteria as follows:

–  Improve Connectivity and Deepening Regional Economic Integration (Integration 4.0): increasing people to people connectivity and women talent in the building sector;

–  Develop better knowledge strategies and innovative devices related to the building sector that reflect opportunities for women;

–  Sustainable Growth: a people-centered approach to advance women’s economic empowerment within APEC;

–  Strengthening Inclusive Growth: visualizing the role of women as a source of development and economic growth, supporting a gender-based vision as a means to create a new relationship between the building sector and inclusiveness.

Relevance – Capacity Building: The gender pay gap throughout the building sector remains too high, mainly due to an underrepresentation of women at the senior level.

This project aligns with APEC’s goals for capacity building, as it is designed to improve the economic and social well-being of women builders, as well as to build APEC member economies’ capacity of creating an enabling environment. This project is centered on dialogue and knowledge-sharing and will build the capacity of the building sector’s policymakers and stakeholders across the APEC region as they gain understanding regarding women’s empowerment and inclusion across all levels of building workforce.

Through a meaningful, and productive dialogue among all member economies, policymakers and stakeholders will gain knowledge on:

(a) How to identify biases and challenges toward women as they move up in their careers;

(b) How to leverage best practices in developing policies and strategies;

(c) How to achieve greater diversity through actionable practices that can be used in the building sector.

To ensure effective capacity building, this project takes a collaborative approach to include diverse experiences by engaging the private sector, academia and relevant non-governmental organization partners. The following issues will be discussed jointly by the above-mentioned stakeholders:

–  How to create an enabling environment in the building sector?

–  How to cultivate female talent through the education system?

–  What are the potential benefits to integrate gender perspectives and encourage women in the building sector?

–  What are the leading strategies on how the building sector can attract and retain more women?

–  How to address the possible obstacles of women’s underrepresentation?

–  What could be developed in the follow-up actions to accelerate the integration of women into the building sector?

Objectives

–  To identify the obstacles of women entering the building sector and its decision-making level;

–  To raise awareness on how to create an enabling environment for public and private sectors across the APEC region;

–  To show best practices, implement a workshop, and a seminar as well as provide policy recommendations that showcase women’s participation in non-traditional areas to shrink the gender pay gap; and

-  To empower women’s talent to connect people and build inclusive growth within the APEC region.

Alignment

Beneficiaries and Outputs

Outputs: 
The main outputs of this project will be:

1.  A Pilot Survey will be launched to identify the gender pay gap and women in decision-making level issues in the building sector including architecture, engineering, and construction it will be used for setting the agenda for project events, contributing to the collection of best practices and setting the Principles on Women Builders Creating Inclusive Future. The survey’s outcome will be presented at the 3-day workshop and integrating the workshop’s results into the Principles. The online survey will be distributed to the APEC forum, including PPWE and HRDWG, surveying government officials or instructions who focuses on building, gender equality, education or economic development. There are two main parts included in this survey as follows:

(a)   Data Collection: Collect sex-disaggregated data from different areas of the building sector in APEC economies to address the gender pay gap and women in decision-making level issues such as employment, average salary, and managerial proportion.

(b)   Data Analysis: Data collection will be summarized for identifying challenges women faces and give instruction on how to remove the barrier for women in building sector. The framework of the Principles on Women Builders Creating Inclusive Future will be also constructed according to the Data collection.

2. A Best Practice Collection and Brochure: To promote women’s leadership in the building sector and to ensure the quality of speakers from the APEC economies, 6 to 8 practices of women leaders from academy, industry, government or enterprises in the building sector will be collected before the workshop. The best practices will be invited to the workshop as speakers in addressing how they succeed in the building sector and provide policy recommendations in creating an enabling environment to engage and retain women in the building sector. 6 to 8 best practices selected will be interviewed during or after the 3-day workshop to document women’s efforts in building sector. The role models from academy, industry, government or enterprises will be listed on the brochure to encourage women’s participation and leadership in the building sector. The brochure will be published to serve as a policy reference to APEC economies and be disseminated at the self-funded seminar.

3.  A 3-day Workshop in Taipei will be implemented in June 2020. At least 40 participants including travel-eligible economies, speakers and specialists in the building sector will be brought together to work on various topics regarding gender pay gap and women’s under-representation in the building sector. 

The discussion topics of the workshop will be based on the outcomes of the pilot survey. The first day of the workshop will focus on challenges and structural issues women face in the building sector; a concrete roundtable discussion will be held on the second day to identify the main issues and practical strategies or actions for the relevant stakeholders; and the third day will include practice sharing from relevant organizations, including job training center in the building sectors, maker spaces and associations for women builders. 

An ex-ante evaluation will be conducted prior to the implementation of the workshop to understand participants’ knowledge on the topic. A follow-up online questionnaire will be sent to the participants to evaluate the effect of the workshop and seek further suggestions. 

4. The Principles on Women Builders Creating Inclusive Future Policy Report will be published within 20 pages as an outcome of this project. based on findings of the entire project, including the pilot survey and Workshop discussions, a policy report ”The principles on Women Builders Creating Inclusive Future” will be created to promote an inclusive future for policy makers. APEC economies and building sector stakeholders will be invited to voluntarily adopt the principles and actions listed in The Principles. It is anticipated that the following actions will be suggested:

․  Raising awareness: To acknowledge the importance of engaging women in higher-wage and high growth sectors, especially the former male-dominated sectors, such as building sector.

. Increasing representation: To ensure women’s participation in building sectors at all levels, across all areas and to support women builders with diverse background.

․  Overcoming barriers: To embed gender perspectives in the building ecosystem and promote laws, policies, programs and partnerships that create enabling environment for women builders. 

5. A Self-funded Seminar to present the results of the project: it will be organized between September and November 2020. As the project is approaching its final stages, the seminar will be conducted to highlight the key outcomes and achievements of the project, share the policy recommendations, and announce the research findings. An open forum will be developed for at least 40 participants (including speakers and experts) to have comments or share new ideas on this project. 

Outcomes: The workshop participants and target audiences of the Principles are expected to gain understanding on how to integrate women in building sector and how to establish an enabling environment in the building sector. It is expected that the Principles will be implemented by APEC economies and will reduce the barriers faced by women in the building sector, and thereby reducing the gender pay gap and increasing women’s participation across the industry. The overall outcomes would be a guide for economies to develop further research or gender inclusive policies for women entering into the building sector, as well as meeting the needs in the labor force market:

1. Awareness of economic impacts of the shortage of genuine gender diversity in the building sector: as many previous case studies have shown, despite a wide range of projects, networks and initiatives focused on gender segregation in the non-traditional area, there has only been a small increase in women in professional positions, and the impact on increasing the number of women in the building sector has been negligible.

The policy makers will be encourage to take measure on meeting women’s need  for increasing and retaining women in the building sector. 

2.  Identifying the barriers to reduce the gender pay gap and increase the proportion of women in the building sector: o navigate the current era successfully, we need to draw from a diverse range of opinions, ideas and experiences. Addressing the above-mentioned issues in a way that will deliver change, we also need to clarify the disconnects that are holding us back from achieving gender diversity, especially in the aspects of reality, data, pipeline, perspective and progress that are summarized from best practices.

These best practices will be a guide for economies to develop further research or gender inclusive policies for women entering into the building sector, as well as meeting the needs in the labor force market. 

3. Broadening beneficiaries’ knowledge on how to create an enabling environment for women builders and how to close the gender gap through decisive actions to deliver the diversity and innovation the building sector needs: in addition to tackling gender stereotyping and investing in training to upskill women builders, we have to find out the workable solutions through diversity of thought and experience underpinned by the mechanism where women could realize talents and fulfill potential. It requires the concerted efforts of the stakeholders such as governments, private enterprises and educational organizations from economies to step up and make hard-edged commitments to lead the transition, backed by meaningful and measurable actions, to deliver a legacy of an equal, diverse and inclusive workforce in the building sector.

Beneficiaries
: The primary beneficiaries will be participants of the workshop from the APEC member economies, mainly but not exclusive to government officers (policymakers and public servants) focused on building, gender equality, education and economic development; and the secondary beneficiaries will be representatives of construction companies, architectural firms and relevant non-governmental organizations who engage in sharing best practices, identifying the obstacles, and addressing basic elements that lead to more women in the building sector. 

The project is also forging stronger relationships through gender issues and the identification of labor market requirements of the building sector. It is important to realize the positive correlation between gender equality and business success, this project not only addresses the primary concerns of women in the industry but it would benefit the stakeholders and the field as a whole. Representatives of related APEC forums such as PPWE, HRDWG, SMEWG and ABAC are welcomed to participate in the information exchange and will be invited to the mentioned activities. 

As to secondary beneficiaries, the project supports the building sectors in the APEC economies to reach their gender diversity objectives, as well as foster equal opportunities and gender-balance in leadership. The Principles on Women Builders Creating Inclusive Future will be issue-based and serve as a sustainable and lasting capacity building tool for audiences in all economies.

Dissemination

A wide range of policy-makers (focused on building, gender equality, education and economic development) and the private sectors are the target audience in this project. All materials of the above mentioned activities, including agendas, presentations, and The Principles on Women Builders Creating Inclusive Future Policy Report and the Best Practice Brochure will be made available through the APEC website (Meeting Document Database).

The Principles on Women Builders Creating Inclusive Future Policy Report and Best Practice Brochure will be produced as APEC’s outputs, following APEC Publication guideline. Digital publication of both publications will be made through the APEC Publication website, and promoted actively by the project overseer on social media networks such as Facebook and LinkedIn, and through press releases and other media engagement. Project overseer will also aim to share the Principles with other related organizations and relevant government agencies such as “Women in Architecture” or “Construction and Planning Agency”.

Gender

The project has committed to promoting women’s economic empowerment through pillars of PPWE: (1) Skills, capacity building, and health, and (2) Leadership, voice, and agency.

–  An equal number of men and women have been invited to attend. We have a goal of 30 percent male speakers/experts and participation in all events. We will ensure that males know they are welcome and encouraged to attend since men remain the majority in the building sector. 

–  It is important that the stakeholders are informed about gender issues by creating and assessing gender awareness among potential partners from the public and private sectors. The participation of women is essential to this project as we seek to reflect women’s experiences and encourage change that benefits women. The project overseer will aim to have women as approximately 50% of participants, facilitators and speakers for the activities in this project, as well as encourage men to be involved in the process so as to create greater awareness and interest in reducing gender pay gap and increasing leadership for promoting women in the building sector.

–  The project would develop gender-responsive actions, clear and workable recommendations for the public and private sectors, including sector-specific analysis, case studies or further assessment of gender opportunities that can be leveraged for the benefit of women.

–  The Project Overseer is committed to collecting sex-disaggregated data for all speakers and participants (not only those funded by APEC) at the project event. This data will be included when submitting a Completion Report to the Secretariat upon completion of the project, as well as providing guidance to future POs on their own gender parity targets.  This data will be used to assess compliance with the project’s gender targets at the conclusion of the project, with performance data shared with APEC members.

Linkages

Engagement: this project aims at developing female talent in the building sector. It is a Cross-Cutting issue that related to PPWE, HRDWG, SMEWG and other relevant working groups. For comprehensive economic growth, there is plenty of room for improvement within the education system, company policies, working environment and career development that would connect to the public and private sectors and thus contribute to harnessing the untapped power of the female workforce for easing labor shortages while simultaneously achieving greater inclusiveness within the APEC region. This project will seek to gather diverse experiences from related APEC fora such as, HRDWG and SMEWG.

Previous work: The project builds on the activities of the APEC self-funded project “Action Strategies Toolkit: Increasing Participation of Women in Non-Traditional Sectors” were held in Vancouver, Antofagasta and Philippines. The event convened representatives from APEC Economies, including senior leaders from government, academic institutions, the private sector, civil society, and international organizations to identify how APEC economies can work together to build the capacity of women in mining industry, transportation and energy area. And the project largely builds on the key action areas such as “Strengthening women´s labor force participation,” “Improving access of women to leadership positions in all levels of decision-making,” and “Support women’s educational training and skills development and access in a changing world of work” in the Santiago Roadmap for Women and Inclusive Growth (2019-2030).

APEC’s comparative advantage: the project is aligned with the funding priorities of the General Project Account which is to strengthen inclusive growth through increasing opportunities for Women and SMEs. Furthermore, APEC holds a comparative advantage of its unique focus on capacity building through the sharing of best practices and fostering public-private partnerships. These objectives will be incorporated into the activities throughout the duration of this project. And the project convenes key stakeholders to identify areas where governments, academia, non-governmental organizations, and the private sector could work together to advance understanding, catalyze progress, recognize the opportunities that could be leveraged for collaboration, and set common goals and actions that are meaningful for women in the building sector.

Sustainability

The project will have an ongoing impact in the following ways:

–  The Principles on Women Builders Creating Inclusive Future will serve as a guide for the stakeholders from the public and private sectors on the skills and knowledge needed, and develop following programs to equip women with the necessary training and skills required to work in the building sector.

– The project will result in final publications by the end of 2020. Following that, the project coordination team will present the project findings to the PPWE, HRDWG and relevant working groups, encouraging economies to build the knowledge gained into the frameworks that is to portray women as visible entities.

–  Another anticipated impact is the desire and awareness of women to move forward. It would be started with non-government organizations which were not satisfied with the roles and labels given to women in the building sector and this mindset became a movement to change the way society perceives women to be.

–  The tracking mechanism would focus on: (a) How many of the participants were able to apply the knowledge and skills developed in the workshop to their work, (b) Has the participating economies established policies/strategies/action plan, (c) Has the process of developing policies/strategies/action plan been participatory and involved a wide variety of stakeholders, and (d) What was the response to the policies/strategies/action plan. A follow-up questionnaire will be sent to the participants of the events to monitor if the project’s objectives were achieved.
