Inspiring leaders and rising stars, exceptional teams and outstanding individuals are encouraged to nominate for the National Association of Women in Construction (NAWIC) 2014 Awards for Excellence.
The awards, hosted by NAWIC’S NSW Chapter, recognise the achievements and encourage the advancement of women in construction in New South Wales. According to NAWIC NSW President Sarah Hogan, the awards, which were established in 1986, have grown to be one of the most anticipated events on the construction industry calendar.
“The Awards for Excellence are for both established and emerging leaders – and are an important opportunity for women at all stages of their construction careers to be recognised and rewarded for their achievements,” Ms Hogan adds.
“Last year’s winner of the prestigious Laing O’Rourke Crystal Vision Award, Lend Lease’s Sandra Triulzi, was acknowledged for her contribution as an influential change agent – and we look forward to rewarding another exceptional woman in 2014,” Ms Hogan says.
