Laing O’Rourke and the National Association of Women in Construction (NAWIC) have partnered to empower women in the construction industry with the 2018 NSW NAWIC Mentoring Program.
The program helps women who have just started in the industry to connect with mentors based on age, experience and goals.
Laing O’Rourke’s Region Director Mark Dimmock said they are strong supporters of workplace equality and diversity within Laing O’Rourke.
“Laing O’Rourke is a long-time member of NAWIC, illustrating our commitment to being an equal opportunities employer and employing a workforce that reflects the diverse society in which we live and work.
“Initiatives such as the NAWIC Mentoring Program are a critical step in attracting and supporting the growth of women in construction, and we are extremely proud to be this years’ sponsor.”
Sarah Hogan, President of NAWIC NSW, shared her excitement towards Laing O’Rourke’s continued relationship with NAWIC.
“We are delighted that Laing O’Rourke has decided to sponsor this program in 2018.
“NAWIC’s Mentoring Program seeks to extend women’s networks and provide them with a point of contact in the construction industry from whom they may gain advice or discuss industry and work-related issues. It’s a two-way interaction that benefits both mentees and mentors”
The program also includes events that will help participants to build their networks, learn from one another, and develop their skills at facilitated workshops. Both mentors and mentees are given the opportunity to expand their coaching, leadership and mentorship skills.
