Why we do what we do?

Posted in Uncategorised


In a multicultural/global society where the communities we design for and the client bodies we design with are diverse, so should our teams be.

The National Association of Women in Construction is one of the world's longest-running organisations for women working in construction. Our growing membership reflects the range of roles available in the built environment and operates within the team spirit which is characteristic of our industry.

NAWIC UK and Ireland is a diverse Not-For-Profit Association with a presence in seven separate regions: Ireland, East Midlands, West Midlands, North East, North West, Scotland and London and South East. Each regional committee is represented at the national level and run independent programmes which respond to their specific contexts.

Our Purpose:

The National Association of Women in Construction is committed to encouraging individuals to pursue, establish and sustain successful careers in the Construction Industry through encouraging opportunities to access first-hand knowledge, share best practice, develop personal and professional skills and to grow professional networks.

We aim to promote the positives in the Construction Industry as a whole and to highlight the fantastic work carried out by professionals working within.

Our key targets are: A shift of focus from gender to ability. Levelling the playing field across the industry. Ending of stereotypes

To achieve this, our work focuses on: Supporting the development of members. Inspiring the young to look at the industry as a valid source for a future career. Reaching out to the entirety of our peers in order to deliver a real difference

Association status:

The National Association of Women in Construction in the United Kingdom and Ireland is an unincorporated association of members run entirely by unpaid volunteers operating in accordance to the NAWIC UK & Ireland rules.

Our independent status enables us to sit at the heart of the industry and to reach out to its leaders facilitating cross-discipline and generational discussions on topics such as Education, Career development or the future of our cities.
