We help women be who they want to be in construction
NAWIC is led by a team of passionate employees and volunteers who all strive to help champion and empower women in the construction and related industries to reach their full potential.
Connection with experienced tradeswomen
The BUSY Sisters mentoring program is specifically designed to support and mentor women to be successful in progressing through their non-traditional apprenticeship or traineeship. By non-traditional, we mean any apprenticeship or traineeship pathway in a field that is ordinarily male-dominated.
Department of Employment, Small Business and Training
The exemplar construction project at Cannon Hill, led by QBuild, highlighted the opportunities for women in construction and sets a wonderful example of breaking down the barriers to gender equality in the construction industry. Female trades participation in Queensland reached almost 5% but on this work site female involvement was 31%, with 22% of the frontline workforce including women in trades like plumbing, electrical, fencing and painting.
Community of women to empower and uplift each other
Awesome Women in Construction (AWIC) is a not-for-profit association dedicated to providing support, resources, and networking opportunities to women working across Australia’s construction industry.
AWIC advocates against discrimination, educates the next generation and amplifies the voices of women in construction.
