“Affinity Groups” Panel Discussion – Women in Construction 2024 – RECORDING

March 20, 2024 | By Anthony Capkun

March 20, 2024 – During this session at the 4th edition of Women in Construction, affinity group experts helped answer questions such as: What are the indications that an affinity group is warranted/needed for the workplace? Why are we doing this? How do we measure the affinity group’s outcomes?

While useful for attracting talent, a successful affinity group really pays dividends when it comes to talent retention. But there are right ways of doing this, and wrong ways.

Moderated by Anthony Capkun, Editor-Publisher (Electrical Business Magazine), the panelists included:


Joanna Osawe, President & CEO, Women in Renewable Energy (WiRE)
Michelle Branigan, CEO, Electricity Human Resources Canada
Nirav Patel, Head of Human Resources & Employee Communications, Atura Power
Rakhi Voria, Vice-President, Global Sales, Procore Technologies

Women in Construction is a virtual event organized by Electrical Business Magazine—along with our “Construction Group” colleagues at Annex Business Media—during the week of International Women’s Day.
