NAWIC’s Waikato chapter plays a pivotal role in raising awareness of the variety of roles and responsibilities being held by women in Waikato’s construction scene.
Social evenings, site visits, networking events, awards and panel discussions, it’s been a busy first year for the National Association of Women in Construction (NAWIC) Waikato chapter. Founded in the US in 1952, NAWIC has been active in New Zealand since 1996, encouraging a growing number of women to pursue, establish, and sustain successful careers in the construction industry.
Nicole Clark, an Architectural Graduate in Chow:Hill’s Kirikiriroa Studio, is an active member of NAWIC Waikato and committee member and says: “Being a part of a great group of women who come together from the same industry, different fields and at all different places in their careers offers a lot of inspiration, great conversations and learnings.”
Earlier this month, NAWIC Waikato celebrated a year of connection and collaboration with a Birthday Bowling Bash. “NAWIC has provided us with a really supportive group of women, all of whom are working in the construction industry here in the Waikato,” says Kerryn Higgins, an Architectural Technician in Chow:Hill’s Kirikiriroa Studio. “The events provide a great variety of activity, learnings, and conversation. It’s an exciting organisation to be a part of.”
