Girls with Hi-Vis® 2018

June

Girls with Hi-Vis® month is fast approaching – lock in your diaries for June 2018!

Why should you take part?

Females only account for about 4% of employees in the Infrastructure in general – an incredibly low figure given females make up 50% of the population! This means that females are well under represented in the industry. Lets change that!

As more details are finalised they will be posted here.

WHY ARE WE DOING IT?

We believe in having the best people working on New Zealand’s infrastructure, irrespective of gender, and with our current skills shortage, the idea of infrastructure being a “male dominated” industry needs to change!
