Women in Construction

It was a pleasure to be a part of the student tour of the nearly completed Scotch College Wellbeing & Sports Centre. WAX Director Amanda Balmer was among the women in the project team who took 20 female STEM students on a behind the scenes tour of the site.

The students gained insights into the construction process, followed by a Q&A session where they learned about career opportunities for women in the construction industry. It was great to hear after the tour that one student has already shown great interest in studying commercial construction at university!

The Scotch College STEM student site tour was facilitated by NAWIC SA and hosted by SA Chapter Silver Sponsors, BADGE Constructions and Hames Sharley. Thank you to all involved.
