We’re dedicated to promoting workplace diversity and are committed to increasing workforce participation for women across the various industries we work in.
We offer a range of programs designed to support women into traditionally male-dominated trade career pathways by creating new opportunities in both established and emerging sectors. This includes introducing pre-school leavers to trade careers and pre-apprenticeship programs; to advice and mentoring for mid-career women to transition into new careers in trades.
Some of the great programs we offer are:
