Sahib highlights that gaining experience not only helps women progress in their careers but also opens doors to starting their own businesses.

“Whether you’re a surveyor, you’re an engineer, you know, at the moment you may be, most of you are attending a college. It’s great to be in that space, but I tell you, it’s much greater if you become an employer too.”

Sahib also stresses the importance of fostering a supportive network and seeking mentorship from established entrepreneurs.

She is urging women in construction to embrace their potential as entrepreneurs to drive innovation in the industry.
