Women Building Australia

 

Building and construction is the nation's second largest industry. It impacts on our everyday lives by building our communities and the homes, schools, hospitals, roads, offices, shops and airports that we take for granted. It also builds prosperity in every city, town and region employing more than a million people. 

But with women currently making up only 11% of the industry's total workforce and only 1% of building trades, the industry is missing out on the skills and talents of half the population.

Attracting the best the workers regardless of their gender means our industry will benefit and evolve with new skills, ideas and innovations, the business success of building businesses will be boosted and more women can take advantage of the fantastic career and job opportunities that our industry has on offer.

Women Building Australia is about making this happen by promoting the opportunities for women and employers and the information and support that they need. 

Women Building Australia is an initiative of Master Builders Australia to increase female participation in the building and construction industry. Women Building Australia aims to change community perceptions so it's recognised that the industry is for women to and that there is a range of job and career opportunities in the industry. Master Builders wants to encourage, recruit, support and retain more women in our industry, that's why we established Women Building Australia www.masterbuilders.com.au
