Industry Experts Attend 2024 Think-Tank Lunch

Exploring new roadmaps that drive meaningful change. 

Creating the next wave of momentum through engagement and thought leadership. 

Hosting our second think-tank lunch with industry participation, the series promotes connection, sharing of ideas and emphasising action over rhetoric to create an equitable industry. This initiative brought together senior experts to hear from Cate Cowlishaw, recipient of the RCC-sponsored 2023 NAWIC Business Woman of the Year award. Also in attendance was Richard Crookes Constructions’ Ashley Barnes, recipient of the 2023 NAWIC Regional Woman of the Year award. 

Kate Hannaford, General Manager – New Business, said, “This think-tank aims to support senior women in construction to channel their vision into practical pathways and solutions that bolster a safe, equitable and inclusive industry for all. Tenacity, leadership and perseverance are qualities that serve as the bedrock of success as we shift the dial and explore a roadmap that enables organisations and individuals to adopt new ways of working.”  

Thank you to all attendees for engaging in such thoughtful, valuable discussion.
