SCWIB is proud to be partnering with Illawarra ITeC as our Venue sponsor
A focus on "Inspiring Insights" for women working in the building and construction industry is a highlight which hears the stories of those women who have worked their way at times through very difficult environments, can give an amazing insight to the challenges and successes accomplished throughout their careers.
Networking is also an important part of our forum and will give you the opportunity to raise any issues affecting your business or trade and gain information and knowledge from key industry providers.
Opportunities are available to do a presentation and have a static display, by hosting and/or partnering with these events, please contact us for further information. Static display sponsorship is also available.
SCWIB events are promoted independently, through local business groups, subscribers & industry groups.
An open forum on industry matters & gaining valuable knowledge, with business to business networking alongside women of all aspects of the building and allied industries in your local area.
Waco Kwikform sponsors our October event
We were pleased to welcome Victoria Kennedy Formwork and Scaffolding Sales Representative for Waco Kwikform as October's event sponsor, whose first job was as an apprentice painter and decorator with a sub- contractor specialising in industrial metal coatings working in the Steel Works and at numerous industrial sites throughout NSW. Victoria gave a terrific presentation on her early years as an apprentice to her successful business as a milliner in exclusive hat making for David Jones to her new role with Waco Kwikform with their new scaffolding equipment! A very diverse and engaging story by Victoria, SCWIB thanks Waco Kwikform for their support!
Plus Virginia Wren from Illawarra ITeC presented a talk on working with millenniums, to do something about understanding what makes them tick! With us having the second highest youth unemployment rate in the state, why are they not taking up apprenticeships? There was some very interactive discussion & feedback on how we can address this issue!
I have been involved in many supportive programs for women in building and construction, from facilitation to education and mentoring over the last 25 years! Also as a director of a design & build cottage company, working in industry associations and industry superannuation companies, a wealth of experience accumulated to share with you and to help support and encourage networking amongst your industry colleagues
