Welcome to the 3rd Women In Construction, Engineering & Infrastructure Summit

At NAWIC we believe with education, advocacy and empowerment, that we rise together. The Women in Construction, Engineering and Infrastructure Summit is a fantastic way to do all of this and more. I am truly thrilled to be joining you all at the Summit in August and I look forward to meeting many of you there. This year’s theme “Leading Inclusive Change” is key to evolving our collective culture and accessing both innovation and commercial outcomes that benefit us all. 
In our industry, we grapple with chronic under representation at the leadership level (and that’s definitely not unique to just construction). We know that organisations who have a diverse representation amongst their leaders perform better, deliver more innovation and have improved commercial outcomes. Workplaces that provide safe environments and economic security for their staff are better places to work, for everyone. Developing strategies so that we can shift the dial to achieve greater female representation is just one of the reasons we are looking forward to conversations about to unfold. Let’s table the challenges and more importantly, together let’s develop solutions. Let’s ensure a woman’s place can be anywhere she wants, her choices are respected, her participation is full and rewarding.  
10% of the event proceeds will be donated to our charity partners for the event: Build Like A Girl and Touched by Christopher. 

This year’s summit is a great way for us as a community to connect, collaborate and together lead inclusive change.

We look forward to meeting you at the Summit in August.

As COO of TTW, I am always looking for ways to
make TTW a better place to work. This event gave
me some key insights into women’s experience

better environment where women can thrive.
