Supporting
Women in
Infrastructure

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 UK, USA, Canada and Australia, WIN NZ now has six chapters across the country in Northland, Auckland, Waikato, Wellington, Christchurch and Queenstown with a combined membership of more than 2100 women.

Membership to WIN is complimentary for individuals employed by an Infrastructure New Zealand member organisation. To create an account, or for any account enquiries, email office@infrastructure.org.nz.

For those not currently employed by a member organisation, the annual network membership fee is NZ$290 (ex-GST). Apply for a membership here.

Why join WIN?

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.

With a membership of more than 2100 women, we are proud to facilitate a diverse network of women at all levels working across the New Zealand infrastructure sector. 

WIN Initiatives

In 2017, the WIN Advisory Board undertook a survey on diversity and inclusion in the infrastructure sector. The results showed that the under representation of women is seen as a real issue for the infrastructure industry and that many organisations have goals to increase the representation of women.

However, progress towards increasing representation of women is slow to moderate at best, and organisations need assistance on how to do this. WIN’s initiatives aim to address this need.

 

Membership to WIN is complimentary for individuals employed by an Infrastructure New Zealand member organisation. Check if your organisation is a member here.

For those not currently employed by a member organisation, the annual network membership fee is NZ$290 (ex-GST).
