Kate Mills, CEO of the Property Industry Foundation is a guest speaker at tonight’s NAWIC NSW Awards for Excellence, celebrating the outstanding achievements and contributions of women in the construction industry.
“It’s so important to be able to celebrate the achievements of women in construction as well as remind ourselves that when the property and construction industry comes together for homeless youth, we can really move the dial,”Kate Mills, CEO property Industry Foundation
Women make up just 12.7% of the Australian construction industry’s workforce, however NAWIC hopes events like these will encourage more women and girls to consider a career in construction and retain talent already working in the field.
“It’s a clear expression of the progress being made by Australian women in construction,”
“These awards shine a light on the contribution women are making to a traditionally male-dominated industry.”Taleah Baird, NAWIC NSW Awards Chair
NAWIC is a not-for-profit organisation that seeks to promote the advancement of women in the construction industry.
“Our vision is simple: an equitable construction industry where women fully participate. We are striving to achieve a 25% minimum female participation across the construction industry by 2025. We support our industry with mentoring programs, training and education, networking events, site tours and awards.”
"This report is critical in illuminating where and how we should be focusing our efforts to end homelessness.”Taleah Baird, NAWIC NSW Awards Chair
The Property Industry Foundation is proud to support and champion women in construction, in partnership with NAWIC.
“We are so happy at the Foundation to partner with NAWIC for this important cause,"
"It’s also great that we are able to do it in person, at the NAWIC awards – a great night for women in construction in NSW.”Kate Mills, CEO property Industry Foundation
