Moving Construction Forward.
Moving Construction Forward.
We are dedicated to advocating for and empowering Women in Construction.
We recognise the challenges, but we know that we are stronger and achieve better outcomes with greater diversity and more women in our workforce.
We are not here to just talk about change, we are here to take action, illuminate the path, and uncover opportunity. We lead by example and inspire those around us.
Welcome to the Movement.

Bill Gates. He is a great problem solver in both business and philanthropy and he isn’t afraid to tackle the biggest challenges, which I find really inspiring.
Phoenix Central Park. It’s the private art gallery and performance space of Judith Neilson, located in Chippendale in Sydney. We’ve had the privilege of working with two amazing architects, John Wardle Architects and Durbach Block Jaggers, on a truly once-in-a-lifetime project.

Eliza McKeith, Design Manager
My job is incredibly creative at times. The best part is working alongside a client to bring my ideas to life. It’s very special to see something you’ve been visualising for some time actually being built. One of my favourites was a project called BRP, which was more of an experimental office design. When it started, the client was going to stay in their existing office and just paint a few walls, but they ended up moving to a really nice building in the city and we did a full-floor fit out. It was an exciting project to be a part of.
Brittany Wells, Contracts Administrator
I love how much I learn every day and that there are so many different aspects to my job, whether I’m working on data centres, understanding how buildings are created or getting an insight into engineering. A recent highlight was a project I was involved in at Oak Hill College. I went to school there, so to be able to come back and work there was really cool. To any woman considering a career in construction, I’d say don’t hesitate. If you're willing to put in the work and it’s something that you're passionate about, there are so many opportunities and pathways to success.
