WIDAC Brisbane

About us

Women in Design and Construction launched in Brisbane in 2016 and is a supportive networking group consisting of women from both the design and construction industries who wish to share ideas, network and provide support for one another in a social setting.

The WIDAC community share their personal and industry accomplishments for the month, discuss upcoming projects, share new design ideas and products, share and work on our personal development goals and network in a fun and casual way so everyone can grow their industry network.

The organisation coordinates numerous special events and workshops throughout the year featuring guest speakers and industry professionals who impart strategies for personal development growth. We are a vibrant, collaborative and diverse community of women and we look forward to seeing you at one of our events soon!

Be sure to follow us on Facebook, LinkedIn and Instagram to stay up to date with upcoming events and workshops.
