Women in Civil

CCF WA is piloting a Women in Civil Mentoring Program where civil construction industry Mentors will be matched with a Mentee, also in the industry.

The Program is designed for women Mentees in the civil infrastructure industry who seek support, guidance and professional growth. They will be paired with a highly experienced man or woman who is willing to commit time and energy to help them with their professional development.

The initial program will consist of 15 Mentors matched to 15 Mentees, through an Application Form process. The program will run for about six months, finishing December 2021.

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 some of the program.

Mentees will develop skills in areas such as:

    • Goal setting
    • Understanding personality styles
    • Network building
    • Resume building
    • How to identify and confront challenges
    • Salary negotiation
    • Industry understanding and confidence

Program overview
