Women’s Forum – ‘because of her, we can’

‘Because of her, we can’ – the NAIDOC Week 2018 theme was the inspiration behind July’s RCC Women’s Forum.

We were lucky enough to be able to explore the theme of ‘Because of her, we can’ through the words of Sandra Gadd and the modern native bush tucker cuisine of Jo-Ann from Goanna Hut.
We all then enjoyed a training session with Vanessa from Learning Circle Co, who took us through an interactive course on identifying and chasing career goals and building our personal brand.

Our series of Women in Construction Forums provide employees with a chance to share knowledge, learn and develop… over lunch (of course)! It’s also an important way for us to acknowledge the contribution and achievements of our staff and thank them for their dedication!

Building Breakfast Point

RCC and the Rose Property Group joined forces more than 13 years ago to develop a former gasworks site into a thriving Sydney suburb.

RCC is proud of our strong residential experience and the thousands of homes we have provided for Australians to live and create memories in. Today, we are celebrating our collaborative partnership and the friendship we have developed in the making of the Breakfast Point community with a short video.
