SHAPE Australia Crystal Vision Awards

Hayley McBride presents the SHAPE Australia Crystal Vision Awards

The National Association of Women in Construction (NAWIC) WA launched their first ever awards event for women in the construction industry on Friday 26 November. Titled the SHAPE Australia Crystal Vision Awards, the event was sponsored by SHAPE and hosted by our very own Hayley McBride of WA. Hayley is also the president of the NAWIC WA chapter and had a lot of involvement in the orchestration of the event. And of course, plenty of team members from the Perth office attended the event, representing SHAPE in style.

The SHAPE Crystal Vision Awards was a formal affair designed to celebrate outstanding women in construction, and thanked all those who have promoted and encouraged women through their progression in the industry. While women in construction related roles have grown by over five percent in the last five years, there is still a significant gender gap in both representation across the industry and average wage. It is hoped these awards will help to further educate the industry on the valuable contribution women can make and also promote construction as a viable career path for women.

As the major sponsor, SHAPE donated $5000 to the event. SHAPE also sponsored the major award presented on the evening, which was given to Melanie Cave of Freehills Law Firm. Melanie is a Senior Associate at Freehills and looks after construction law. Congratulations to everyone involved, especially the leading ladies.
