According to the NSW Department of Education, participation of women in male-dominated trades has remained persistently low for decades.
Women generally make up only 2% of the workforce in key industries like building and construction, electrotechnology and automotive. Indigenous women are even less represented.
“We’re proud to be cooperating with local stakeholders, community members, local RTOs and employers,” said DHUB Coordinator Brooke Mallison.
“This is not just an excellent opportunity for local Indigenous women; it’s also a great community-strengthening exercise for everyone involved.”
Bamara and AES are committed to making an impact for local Indigenous women to thrive and kickstart careers in the construction and earthmoving industries.
