WOMEN IN BUILDING AND CONSTRUCTION
Women in Building and Construction (WIBC) is a grass-roots support group for women from all parts of the construction industry, from women onsite, investors, construction engineers and architects, work health and safety consultants, builders, suppliers, subcontractors, contractors' wives (who often describe themselves as "just" doing the books), successful business women in the industry and service providers.
The group provides:
An opportunity to meet like-minded women in the building and construction industry;
A link between industry trades and professionals in a warm and supportive environment;
Opportunities for inexperienced members of the industry to create formal and informal mentoring relationships with experienced members;
Presentations that empower and inspire; and
A local business network.
WIBC was proudly co-founded in Australia in 2015 by Redland City, Queensland business women Fionna C Aitchison Reid (Director, Aitchison Reid Building and Construction Lawyers) and Lynne Sturgess (Principal, Precision Loans).
