Today is International Women’s Day.
On this day, AIBS want to recognise the contribution that our women building surveyors make to our industry and reinforce our commitment to further developing opportunities for women in the profession which is currently under-represented.
AIBS is proud and appreciative of the contributions made by of our female members through their membership on the Board, Chapter Committees and Branches, the Technical, Education & Women’s Special Advisory Groups, the National Accreditation Panel and through Australian Standards Committees. We take this opportunity, on International Women’s Day, to recognise their contribution.
AIBS applauds the Victorian Government’s recent announcement of a commitment of $6.3million to create more opportunities for women to train as municipal building surveyors in local Councils and request all Australian governments to initiate similar programs as a permanent fixture of each State and Territory budget.
We look forward to working to develop our pathways for more women to enter into what is a very rewarding career.
