About Us


We Advocate For Change | We Educate & Empower | We Connect


The National Association of Women in Construction (NAWIC) is an Australian, not-for-profit organisation formed in 1995.


NAWIC is led by a team of passionate employees and volunteers who all strive to help champion and empower women in the construction and related industries to reach their full potential. With Chapters in every state and territory, we are also part of a global network of NAWIC organisations, including those in the United States, New Zealand and Canada.

NAWIC provides a forum for its members to meet and exchange information, ideas and solutions. We also offer our members an opportunity to expand personal and business networks, maintain awareness of industry developments, improve skills and knowledge and make a contribution to other women in the construction industry.

Our Vision (Where We Are Heading)

An equitable construction industry where women fully participate.


Our Mission (How We Do It) 

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

To achieve 25% minimum female participation across all of the construction industry by 2025. 

What Do We Do

With our combined experience, our Advocacy team will be leading change across government and industry. We will be the ‘go to’ voice for comment around women in construction.
