We recently sponsored an all-female Constructionarium in Australia.
Constructionarium is a hands-on 8-day, accelerated training experience for new infrastructure staff to work as a team to plan, tender, build and handover a scale project of a bridge structure.
The program is designed for early career professionals, graduate program participants, interns and those new to infrastructure, and is aimed at developing skills and understanding of the entire project life cycle through tendering, delivery and client handover phases.
And why an all female cohort?
Australia has a shortage of over 100,000 engineers to build the infrastructure we need for our future. Women remain significantly under represented in engineering. The more women we can attract to our profession and retain through great development initiatives like the Constructionarium, the better for our country.
