The National Association of Women in Construction (NAWIC) is an Australian, not-for-profit organisation formed in 1995. Our vision is to achieve an equitable construction industry where women fully participate.
In order to achieve this, NAWIC’s mission is to drive changes that will aid in the increased recruitment, retention and further vocational development of women within all facets of the construction industry. Our core policy is to achieve a minimum of 25% female participation in construction by 2025.
We aim to accomplish this through focusing on three key areas. Firstly, within advocacy and lobbying with our combined experienced advocacy team leading change across government and industry, as well as being the ‘go to’ voice for comment around women in construction.
Secondly, we aim to focus on education at all levels, supporting robust initiatives designed to foster success, create future leaders and role models and empower our industry associates to make informed decisions.
Finally, we support the connection, celebration and support for all women in construction through our membership community. With energetic and vocal NAWIC Chapters in every State and Territory we deliver networking opportunities, individual support, recognition and a lifelong community for women on a personal level that is safe, supportive and welcoming right throughout Australia.
