Women In Trades

Currently in Australia’s second largest industry, women only total 1% of building trades in the country. For many years the trade industry has been male-dominated however, in recent years women in the industry have been on a rise and are continuing to boost Australia’s economic growth.

By improving the participation rate of women in the workforce, particularly in male-dominated industries like construction, research conducted by UNSW states, Australia could potentially increase its economic growth by $25 billion over the next 10 years.

We want more women to benefit from employment opportunities that our industry has on offer.

At Master Builders Association we value & encourage the best labourers regardless of their gender by providing the right tools & information to support them on their journey.
