RA International Women's Day Event - Perception vs reality - the real reason women aren’t considering our industry

09/03/2021 12:00 to 09/03/2021 13:30

Venue: via Zoom


Join us for RA's International Women's Day webinar, an interactive session discussing the theme of 2021, #ChooseToChallenge.

Roads Australia is embracing this theme by choosing to challenge current perceptions of our industry, spotlighting the experiences and contributions women are making as leaders across the sector, as well as exploring opportunities to address some of the barriers to entry for young women considering a career in construction or engineering.

This session will bring together senior leaders to hear directly from students and education professionals to consider what more we can be doing to enhance the attraction and retention of women in our industry moving forward. We will consider issues from operational, management and consulting perspectives, and examine how our tertiary and vocational education systems can best be used to promote sustainable career pathways, particularly for those from diverse and/or disadvantaged backgrounds.

Senior leaders will be invited to attend this event alongside a female emerging leader from their organisation; further promoting the need for internal sponsorship in order to develop tomorrow’s female leaders.

Interactive session

30-40 senior leaders – each invited to bring a female emerging leader
