Advancing Women in Engineering and Construction (AWEC) 2022 Symposium

Reshaping the Industry through the collective voice of women

 4th November 2022, Aotea Centre, Auckland


The inaugural 2022 Advancing Women in Engineering & Construction (AWEC) symposium is an initiative to support the development and retention of women in the engineering sector and associated parts of the construction industry, supported by NZSEE and SESOC. Alongside civil and structural engineers in particular, the event is also intended to be open to architects, regulatory officials, project managers and others from technical professions related to engineering & construction.


The full-day schedule is focused around encouraging networking and collaboration throughout. Michelle Grant and Ceinwen McNeil are lined up as keynote speakers, who will set the tone for the event, followed by a series of workshops and then closing up with a panel of change makers. The Symposium has been designed with the intention of giving women the space to share their experiences and contribute their thinking to the initiatives needed to enable change. Full Symposium information is available on the website: or on the flyer
