Supporting women in infrastructure
Infrastructure Sustainability Council of Australia and Coffey International proudly partnered with Destination Trades New Zealand to support women in infrastructure and promote sustainable procurement.
Destination Trades is a social purpose organisation dedicated to the effective recruitment, training, social support and retention of women in the construction trades so that they achieve positive economic change and inspiring futures.
“This is an important initiative that is providing rewarding careers for women but it’s also addressing the needs of an increasingly resource constrained industry” said Andrew Mailer, Regional General Manager Coffey, A Tetra Tech Company New Zealand.
Emma Waterhouse, Principal Environmental & Social Consultant, spoke at the event and commented “I have no doubt that this initiative brings value to all the participants but importantly having more women in construction will be transformative to the industry and that’s exciting”.
