CCF WA's Women in Civil Mentoring Program matches civil construction industry Mentors with a Mentee, also in the industry.
The Women in Civil Mentoring Program is a professionally designed and delivered development program for women Mentees in the civil infrastructure industry who seek support, guidance and professional growth.
Mentees are paired with a highly experienced Mentor (male or female) who is willing to commit time and energy to help the Mentee with their professional development.
The program will consist of 12 Mentors matched to 12 Mentees. The program will run for about seven months, commencing in August.
CCF WA has engaged leadership development organisation Modal to deliver the program – which includes having Modal’s consultant, Rechelle Hawkes AM, former Hockyroos captain and three-time Olympic gold medallist, facilitate the program.
This program aims to assist Mentees develop skills in areas including goal setting, understanding personality styles, network building, resume building, how to identify and confront challenges, salary negotiation, and industry understanding and confidence.

CCF WA's Women in Civil sundowners and breakfasts are the ideal networking opportunity for women in civil construction.
2022 Women in Civil Sundowner:
It was lovely to see so many new and familiar faces networking, posing for drawings by artist Ash Von, and enjoying the surrounds of the spectacular Hackett Hall under Otto the blue whale for the Women in Civil Sundowner at the WA Museum Boola Bardip on June 23, 2022. We also heard from Rechelle Hawkes AM about the upcoming 2022 Women in Civil Mentoring Program. And as always, thank you to our Women in Civil Partner and event Major Sponsor Kais Hire Pty Ltd for your continued support of Women in Civil.

Attracting, retaining and promoting women working in the civil construction industry was the issue of the day at the CCF WA Women in Civil Breakfast on April 29, 2022. Special guest speakers included Minister for Women’s Interests Simone McGurk, Champions of Change Coalition Program Director Tania Cecconi, and Clough Vice President of Strategy and Development, APAC Carl Titchmarsh. Minister McGurk has led the State Government’s Plan for Gender Equality, while Ms Cecconi has been instrumental in shifting the conversation in WA from fixing women to fixing workplaces, and Mr Titchmarsh spoke off the back of Clough’s second Employer of Choice for Gender Equality Citation by the Workplace Gender Equality Agency. Our 2021 Women in Civil Mentors and Mentees were also presented with their certificates of completion for the program.
