Resilient Women in Construction – Mental Health in the Workplace

The construction industry is notoriously male-dominated, and the many capable women who enter the construction industry often 

have to fight harder, speak louder and face extraordinary pressure to create their own success.

Event attendees will be provided with the tools to achieve personal resilience which will make the difference between “just coping” and thriving under pressure in the workplace. The guest speakers joining us for this event are all experts in their field and look forward to sharing their knowledge too small to medium sized business owners, women in construction and aboriginal & islander communities who simply feel they don’t ‘fit’ anywhere.

This event is proudly supported by Queensland Alliance for Mental Health, in partnership with Queensland Mental Health Commission.
