Coalition builds opportunities for women in construction


The Coalition Government is determined to see more women in work in Australia’s building and construction industry, our nation’s third largest industry.

Minister for Jobs and Industrial Relations and Minister for Women, the Hon Kelly O’Dwyer MP, announced on International Women’s Day funding of $675,000 for Women Building Australia, a construction industry led program to increase the participation of young women working in the sector.

“The construction industry is Australia’s third largest industry and employs more than one million Australians,” Minister O’Dwyer said.
