Millennium Fellowship Project: Project Construction Equality 2 College

Project Construction equality 2 College is an educational project that aims to reach out to female secondary school students by visiting and educating them on career prospects in the construction industry as well as the importance of building a career path in construction. It will offer a women-only training programme to provide them with the necessary knowledge and skills to succeed in postsecondary level. The project also aims to challenge the perception that women are less likely than men to be hired for physical and technical labour roles, particularly in the construction industry.

About the Millennium Fellow

Mercy Oluwatobiloba Oyewole, born on the 23rd of September, is a meticulous and result-driven young Nigerian lady. Ever since she gained admission to study Quantity Surveying at the Federal University of Technology, Akure, she has been enlightened about the construction industry where she is passionately building a career path.

Likewise, Mercy is passionate about breaking glass ceilings and continuously advocates for the involvement of women in the Construction Industry. The drive originates from her combined two years experience in different construction firms where she served as the only female technical staffer in both firms.

As the President of her Departmental Student Association and an advocate of women involvement in the construction industry, Mercy has facilitated and led teams of Professionals and Colleagues to two secondary schools in Akure, Ondo State, to educate female students on the need to choose a career path in construction. This is because many of these students lack the knowledge of these career opportunities and require people like Mercy who is passionate about enlightening them on the Construction Industry.

Mercy aspires to break the barrier of male dominance in Construction and pursues this goal in collaboration with Fellow change agents within her community; strategizing, implementing and celebrating the team's little quota in making the construction industry more gender-balanced.
