"To build an inclusive environment for females, we need to understand that it is more costly than having a male do the job (in our industry)."
"This shouldn't, however, rule it out for us. Systems should be built to include us, therefore looking into policies and regulations to include such things as being able to relocate with your kids, having benefits for nannies, toilet systems that are female user friendly, etc."
