Top 100 Women Panel - Building WOMEN, Not Just HOUSES

15 Mar 2019
Women in Construction Summit

The Top 100 Women addresses not only gender equality within the sector, but chats to some of the leading businesses within the Country about what they are doing to assist in Social & Affordable Housing.
For long it has been overlooked that Women over 55 are actually the largest group on the Social Housing waitlist. Which is made up of approx. 200,000 people & families in need of a home.
The companies on the panel have successfully tackled diversity in their own business’s and are now also paving the way to fill the gap in the housing market. A successful operation in this particular segment not only assists women of this age but addresses a problem of diversity as a whole. It’s one thing to say we need more women within the industry, but what are we doing with the women we have?
Better yet, what are we doing as a whole, to help house the over 60% of the social housing waitlist which make up our Mothers & Grandmothers?”

Topics include:

  • Social & Affordable Housing
  • Leading Builders within the sector
  • Development ideas in Social & Affordable Housing
  • Gender Diversity
  • Companies who have successfully reached a 50% ratio of Women within their organisations

What the Australian construction industry is saying about Sydney Build...

  • The Perfect Hire team and I thought the expo was fantastic. There was a great mix of people walking through looking at the exhibitions and we have gained a lot of quality leads due to this. We did not hesitate to sign up for the following year when approached to do so.
    Perfect Hire
  • This expo has 100 percent given us very goods leads we could follow up on. This is the best form of marketing we’ve done so far. We’ve been able to connect with leads that are usually very difficult to get in contact with. We’re definitely coming back next year.
    High Exposure
  • The show has a good variety of content including conference, summit and the exhibition itself. We got some quality leads as well. We will definitely come again next year.
  • I just wanted to say to you and the team, great job on an excellent event. I'd been in years before and this one was by far the best. You had great traffic. I was actually surprised. I'm definitely interested in a bigger speaking role next year and I'll likely exhibit.
    Tradie Web Guys
  • We got some quality leads. The show is managed by very nice organizers. We enjoyed the content and environment of the show a lot.
    Regupol Australia Pty Ltd
  • The show is excellent for the business. There’s lots of good quality people to do business with. This is also the best show we’ve ever been to.
