2018 NAWIC NSW AWARDS FOR EXCELLENCE

Women were recognised for exceptional talent and leadership in the property and construction industry at the 2018 NAWIC NSW Awards for Excellence More than 1,100 guests gathered at the International Conventional Centre Sydney last week for the 22nd annual NAWIC NSW Awards for Excellence. Celebrating the construction and property industry’s advancement of women, the event is hosted by the National Association for Women in Construction NSW Chapter, and attracted a record number of more than 100 nominations across 11 categories. The awards are a clear expression of the progress being made by Australian women in construction, and celebrate both rising women stars and recognised leaders from across the property and construction industry, as well as companies supporting and guiding female talent. “Each year, NAWIC shines a light on this progress. From the apprentice, to the first-year university student, to the CEO, women now enjoy more opportunities than what we could have imagined even a few short years ago. They experience a greater sense of purpose and ambition,” explains NAWIC NSW President and MPA’s Marketing & Client Relations Director, Sarah Hogan. Changing values within business and the broader community means women have an extraordinary opportunity to make a real difference to the way the male-dominated industry operates. This was felt throughout the event, with guests enthralled and entertained by the MC on the night, acclaimed journalist, TV presenter and vocal campaigner for #metoo, Jessica Rowe. Dami Im, who represented Australia at Eurovision, featured as the headline act. The night also featured an auction of two pot chairs and an A222 circular coffee table by Arne Jacobsen for Fritz Hansen, which was donated by Richard Munao, founder and managing director of Cult. All proceeds from the auction contribute to the International Women’s Day Scholarship in 2019. MPA were once again a proud sponsor of the event, and were present at the awards. Director Ben Ritchie presented the MPA Award for Achievement in Construction, Refurbishment and Fitout, which was awarded to Michele Biruski from Stockland. This award recognises achievement in applying exceptional construction processes to a project that has reached practical completion, and awards the winner for successfully managing complex components of a project. With the industry overwhelmingly under-represented by women, the NAWIC NSW awards are an important vehicle to advance the careers of women, and to enhance the property and construction industry. “A sustainable and successful workforce of women in construction and property must start at the grass roots level. NAWIC’s sustained efforts have helped more women to lead, learn, collaborate network and celebrate excellence – and as we do the depth and breadth of our female talent pool expands,” said Sarah. MPA congratulates everyone who won an award on the night, and all those women who were nominated for awards this year.

International Women's Day Scholarship

NAWIC NSW held its annual International Women’s Day (IWD) Breakfast in March at CULT Studio in Chippendale, during which we were proud to announce the winner of the 2018 NAWIC IWD Scholarship. Supported by long-term sponsor CULT, this annual award is the most significant scholarship for female professionals in the property and construction industry. Attending were Sarah Hogan, President NAWIC NSW and MPA Director Marketing & Client Relations, Richard Munao, Founder and Managing Director CULT Design, 2016 Scholarship winner Dr Natalie Galea, Research Associate/PhD Built Environment at UNSW, and a multitude of guests who enjoyed catching up with friends over breakfast canapes and Bellinis on a sparkling Autumn morning. Congratulations to 2018 Scholarship winner Dr Phillippa Carnemolla, whose research application was selected from a field of 19 strong proposals. Dr Phillippa’s research will focus on school-aged girls’ perceptions of careers in the construction industry and trades. The future of gender equality in our industry relies on the career choices of today’s school students; therefore the social and cultural influences on girls’ career choices cannot be underestimated. We look forward to hearing the outcome of her findings at next year’s NAWIC IWD Breakfast. We were also delighted to hear insights from our 2017 NAWIC IWD Scholarship winner, Sara Pendergast, who discussed the findings of her research, “What does effective attraction of females to operational roles look like?” In her paper, Sara examines reasons for low female participation in the construction sector, seeking to discover how the construction industry can successfully attract women into operational roles to support a more holistic industry. To download a copy of Sara’s paper, please see https://www.nawic.com.au/Web/IWD_Scholarship/National_IWD_Scholarship_Archive.aspx. Please join us in congratulating our 2017 and 2018 Scholarship winners, whose research contributions enable us in construction and property to examine the gender imbalances within our industry, in order to bring about real and lasting change.
