A new initiative to improve gender equality within Queensland’s building and construction industry started this month at the Queensland Building and Construction Commission.

This month, QBCC Acting Assistant Commissioner Alarna Lane-Mullins launched the inaugural ‘Bring Your Daughter to Work Day’, as a way of highlighting to young women what a career in the construction industry can look like.

“Building and construction has always been a male-dominated industry but we’re keen to show women that there are many rewarding, challenging and exciting career paths within the industry,” Ms Lane-Mullins said.

“According to available QBCC data, there are approximately 745 female licensees out of approximately 103,000 licensees, and this has got to change.”

“The QBCC provides diverse and inclusive career opportunities for anyone interested in the building and construction industry.”

“Our inaugural ‘Bring Your Daughter to Work Day’ received tremendous support and daughters aged from 4 to 15 years, came to the QBCC earlier this month to hear about the great work opportunities available.”

“It’s one of several new initiatives by the QBCC aimed at improving gender equality in the industry.”

“The QBCC is also in the process of signing a new partnership with the National Association of Women in Construction to further support and encourage more women into the industry.”
