We are WIDAC. Women in Design and Construction.
We offer real, relatable and engaging events, workshops and programs.
Here's a sneak peek into our community.
Our Warmest Welcome...
A wonderful community of women awaits you, ready to empower each other, create pathways to leadership and evolve as a collective. Whether you're attending a WIDAC event for the first time, you’ve lost count of how many times you've joined us or you've recently become a Member – we’re so glad you’re here! We understand how daunting it can be to walk into a room of people you’ve never met. Our WIDAC Ambassadors are here to guide you through those uncomfortable and nerve-racking feelings.
What we're talking about...
Real and engaging content is delivered in a relatable tone by a curated line-up of Guest Speakers at all Events & Workshops. Our topics vary greatly - from interior design, to conquering workplace bullying, to building code specifics, to engineering, to babyproofing your career, to wellness... it's a rich tapestry of content! We may not know it all, but together we can share experience, advice and tips that can otherwise be hard to come by. Live polling ensures we know what you’re most keen to hear about.

Did someone say wine?
Oh yes, we did! Set amongst beautifully designed showrooms, studios and venues, you’ll enjoy a delightful charcuterie board and a selection of delicious wine. We do our best to cater for gluten & dairy free, vegan, Halal and non-alcoholic choices, so no matter who you are, or what tickles your fancy, we’ve got you covered. Our Sponsors are the magic ingredient that we couldn't do without! - they not only make the events and workshops come to life, but they also provide lucky door prizes for you to enjoy. That business card you dropped off on the way in, might lead to a prize joining you on the way out.
Our biggest fans...
WIDAC and its offerings are made possible by the support of our incredible National and State-based Sponsors. With the help of these amazing sponsors, we are able to connect and empower women on their pathway to success and leadership.
We like to do our bit...
You’ll hear us talk about Mother’s Care Packages, Graduate Programs and Mentoring Programs – these are just a few of the exciting Programs & Initiatives we run, helping to give back to our community and industry. This community comes together in many ways to celebrate each other and our success.
So, this is the part that makes us feel warm and squishy inside. We’ll keep it short. Basically, we are a tight knit and welcoming community, so if you need a platform to get in front of people, then we totally want to make it happen. Put forward yourself, your business or your side hustle to gain exposure at one of our events!
We talk a lot about connection, support and giving back at WIDAC. These things are at the core of our company. They underpin everything we do. It’s important to us that these values flow through to our relationship with our WIDAC community, our local community, the environment and charitable organisations, as well as our sustainability practices.
Through this Schools Engagement Program, we promote opportunities available to young women in our industry. Through sharing the day-to-day life of dynamic women in diverse roles, such as engineers, architects, tradeswomen and project managers (just to name a few!) we aim to shine a spotlight on the intricacies of the industry, promote specialisations that may not have been considered before, and provide an opportunity to engage with those in the know.
