“Being a Women in Construction Ambassador for Sydney Build 2024 is an honour and privilege.  Finding and obtaining a role in this industry has long been a barrier for women, and it’s important  we showcase the many opportunities that now exist for women and girls, as well as ensuring  construction companies are providing adequate opportunities for those keen to make their mark  in the industry.” – Bec McCoan, Content Manager – Women’s Network Australia 

“The presence of females in male-dominated fields and being part of the women in construction  ambassadors of Sydney Build will aim to not only empower women, but will also encourage men  to be included in the conversation — which is equally as important!” – Heimy Molina, Graduate  Engineer 

“Being chosen as a Women in Construction ambassador for the Sydney Built Expo in 2024 is a true  privilege and a thrilling opportunity. I am excited to represent and empower women in this  dynamic industry, showcasing our skills, expertise, and contributions. Together, we will continue  to break barriers, inspire others, and pave the way for a more diverse and inclusive future in  construction.” Taleah Henderson, CEO – Future Lady Tradies
