The Newfoundland and Labrador Construction Association (NLCA) has scheduled the Women in Construction Forum for Oct. 27 in St. John’s.
The day-long event “will provide a platform for educational and professional development, along with an opportunity to network with like-minded women in the construction industry,” the association says.
“This event will empower women to continue to grow and achieve success in the industry with a ‘We’re Better Together’ motto supporting women as we rise by lifting others.”
The event starts with a business luncheon featuring “an empowering discussion with inspiring women detailing their journey and how they are making a difference in their various sectors.”
The panel session incudes Gina Peacore, CEO, Genoa Design International; Stephanie Hickman, Partner, Cox & Palmer; Gina Tapper, President, Hampton Building Systems Inc.; and Gertrude Bradbury, President, Locke’s Electrical Ltd.
There will then be an “Unlock your potential” workshop with speaker Tonya Whittle intended to “help women define goals for the progression of the construction industry, uncover blocks to what they desire, tap into their true potential and rewire their nervous system.”
The program concludes with a cocktail reception.
