Our Networks in Focus

February 24, 2022

The Women’s Infrastructure Network (WIN) was launched by Infrastructure New Zealand at the 2016 Building Nations Symposium.

Its purpose is to increase the number of women in leadership roles, grow the visibility of women, and to provide a networking and support group for women in the infrastructure sector.

As part of a global network operating in the United Kingdom, the United States, Canada and Australia, WIN NZ now has seven chapters across the country in Northland, Auckland, Waikato, Wellington, Christchurch, Otago and Queenstown with a combined membership of more than 2100 women.

In partnership with Infrastructure New Zealand, WIN hosts events nationwide, advocates for greater representation of women in the sector, and provides opportunities and tools for women to connect with each other. We are proud to facilitate a diverse network of women at all levels working across the New Zealand infrastructure sector. 

Membership to WIN is complimentary for individuals employed by an Infrastructure New Zealand member organisation. To become a member of WIN, please contact paige.hallam@infrastructure.org.nz.


The Infrastructure Collective (TIC) was previously known as the Emerging Talent Network and was rebranded in 2021.

The Infrastructure Collective offers support, development, and representation for future leaders in the infrastructure sector. TIC is accessible, knowledgeable, and passionate about improving New Zealanders’ quality of life through delivery of world-class infrastructure projects at a national and regional level.

Group membership has grown steadily since Infrastructure New Zealand first established the network in 2017, connecting young infrastructure leaders and promoting best practice across the industry.

We are pleased to announce the launch of the Canterbury TIC Committee, chaired by Paul Curry. By expanding TIC to the South Island we hope to achieve a greater reach of support and guidance for the younger members in the industry. To become involved with the Canterbury Chapter, feel free to get in touch with Paul at P.Curry@higgins.co.nz.

Membership to TIC is complimentary for individuals employed by an Infrastructure New Zealand member organisation. To become a member of TIC, please contact paige.hallam@infrastructure.org.nz.

We will be profiling leaders in both of these spaces over the coming months.
