On International Women’s Day we came up with a simple way for tāngata to show their support for women who have successfully taken a bold step into a career which in days gone by has been viewed as a ‘man’s job’.

At a time when we need more people in the construction trades, we wanted our female apprentices, their employers and fellow tradies to celebrate this day. Ongoing, we want our industries to recognise that diversity is a key step in encouraging more women to look at a trade as a viable career option.  This led to the creation of this icon.

This symbol is available here to download and use, whether you're a tradie, a partner, friend, co-worker or an employer of women in construction, we're pleased for you to share it.

Show customers and the wider market that you’re a company or individual that is inclusive and diverse.
