New Zealand's infrastructure industry has a skills gap when it comes to areas such as upgrading roading networks, replacing leaky water pipes, maintaining power lines or installing faster broadband technology. These jobs are in high-demand, can be a lot of fun, and provide varied career paths…for women just as much as men.

Girls with Hi-Vis® gives female students the opportunity to gain hands-on experience, hear from inspirational women in the industry and learn what a career in the infrastructure's civil, energy, telecommunications and water industries can offer.


This year, we are extremely excited to be partnering with BCITO | Te Pūkenga to deliver 3 pilot events for the construction industries and 1 collaborative event with Connexis. Please click on the button below to find out more information about these opportunities and register using the same form below.

There is still space in the following event:

Please note that Connexis infrastructure events are now closed for registrations. We look forward to seeing you in June.
