These Donegal dolls have been busy on a strong campaign for general equality in the male-dominated industry.

Donegal based company, Lottie Dolls partnered with Construction Industry Federation on their recent #BuildingEquality campaign to show women the importance of their role in construction.

The campaign highlighted the gender imbalance existing in the current construction workforce with women making up only 5.5% of the industry.

As part of the collaborative, CIF sent Lottie to work!

Equipped with appropriate safety and reflective gear, photographs of Lottie were taken on construction sites and in planning meetings. #LottieTour images were shared to provide girls with a positive representation of #BuildingEquality, a vision of what women can do.

Off the back of #BuildingEquality, CIF, who is based in Dublin became aware of another Lottie campaign being run with fellow Dublin based charity, Childvision.

Childvision, a 130 year old organisation based in Drumcondra is the only place in Ireland totally dedicated to the education and therapy needs of blind and disabled children.

Lottie teamed up with Childvision in March to launch a #BuyOneGiftOne charity drive whereby for every Lottie Doll bought over the course of two weeks, we would donate a Sirius Pony to Childvision.

On recognising the great work done by the staff and volunteers at Childvision, CIF was eager to get involved and as such donated 50 Sirius Ponies to the centre asserting that #BuildingEquality is something that should be extended to all children regardless of gender or ability.
