We help women be who they want to be in construction

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 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) 

NAWIC is THE advocate for positive change for women in the construction industry.
