We are a non-profit association of women who work either in the construction industry or for business organisations who provide services to the construction industry.
The number of women in the construction industry has grown exponentially in recent years and women are hard at work in just about every construction job. This growth has prompted the establishment and success of NAWIC.
NAWIC was founded in Texas in 1952 by a group of 16 women. Since then it has grown to an international organisation. Today it is going strong in the USA, UK, Canada, Australia, South Africa and New Zealand. The organisation has been active in Wellington since 1996, with events attended by members and non-members from a database of 300 women including trades, quantity surveyors, site supervisors and project managers, suppliers, designers, architects, engineers, and lawyers.
What We Do
NAWIC encourages women to pursue, establish and sustain successful careers in the construction industry. We hold regular events to inform and up-skill women in construction and to promote networking and information sharing among for the betterment of the construction industry.
