Event: NAWIC National Conference 2015
The National Association of Women in Construction’s (NAWIC) inaugural National Conference in October 2015 will champion change in the construction industry by “inspiring champions of change and working together for greater inclusiveness and flexibility across every age, gender and culture”.
To be held at Melbourne’s Pullman Hotel on October 8 and 9, the NAWIC National Conference’s five key aims are to work collectively on how to:
1. Reduce the gender equity pay gap
2. Increase participation of women in the construction industry
3. Inspire champions of change for inclusiveness, behaviour, flexibility regardless of age, gender or culture
4. Grow and sustain a healthier industry for the future
5. Build a better future for construction in Australia
Details on conference streams, topics, workshops and speakers are yet to be released.
NAWIC, a not-for-profit organisation, formed in 1995, says its "values of courage, inclusion, safety and wellbeing, integrity and resilience are upheld by the Association’s four pillars – to raise the profile of women in the construction industry; to develop careers and leaders; to develop networks, share knowledge and experience; and to take positions and advocate – to ensure unity in all aspects of the construction industry".
Thursday 8 and Friday 9 October 2015
Pullman Hotel, Albert Park, Melbourne, Victoria
All women and men who want to actively participate in the development of clear solutions and actions that will make change within the construction industry; our pledge is to implement the ideas and strategies generated at the conference to build a better future for all.
