Help us empower women on their pathway to success and leadership.

In 2016, WIDAC was born from the desire of two women seeking a networking platform that was welcoming, comfortable and genuine. It's been our commitment, since day one, to welcome, connect and empower women. You can help us do it, and elevate your brand at the same time.

WIDAC National Gold Partner – Autex Acoustics – offer interior acoustic products which are globally recognised for their quality and environmental sustainability. Autex Acoustics are committed to a better built environment; they believe in spaces and buildings that not only work well, but look great and will positively influence the productivity, health and well-being of their occupants.

As a dedicated and passionate National Partner of WIDAC from the beginning, Autex Acoustics have not only remained committed to the ongoing development of our industry-specific offerings, but were also WIDAC’s first ‘Mothers Care Packages’ sponsor, an initiative that has seen a number of new mothers from within the WIDAC community supported, as well as gifted with hampers (featuring both practical and ‘pamper’ items). Our aligned values have seen endless goals met in terms of mutual promotion and a growing, engaged community.

WIDAC Silver Partner – COVA – is a privately owned multi-disciplinary engineering firm that offers innovative engineered design solutions to the built environment. With offices in Sydney, Melbourne, Hobart, Singapore, Phnom Penh and Auckland, we are first and foremost engineers, priding ourselves on our ability to find solutions to the most complex of projects. Our expertise comes from 40+ years of experience and it is this above all else that has cemented our industry reputation for trust, thought leadership and commercial awareness. We call it ‘Stronger Together’, and it’s this open, mutual collaboration that keeps our clients returning time and time again.

Through their recent sponsorship, the team at COVA have not only helped make events and workshops come to life, but they have also supported the expansion of WIDAC across states. This increased reach will mean that WIDAC now has a physical presence in five states, and a digital presence across Australia – meaning an exceptional, exciting and important reach for women across design, construction and related industries.
