The National Association of Women in Construction has appointed Sheryle Moon to the new position of Chief Executive Officer
February 6th, 2013
Former Telstra Australian Business Woman of the Year, Sheryle Moon brings to the position twenty years of ‘C-level’ experience with organisations spanning the private sector, including ASX-listed and Fortune 500 companies, and not-for-profit sector.
“Sheryle is highly-respected as a leader in the information technology and recruitment industries, and has been particularly passionate about advancing the career opportunities for women in both sectors. This, combined with her experience leading a number of industry associations, made her a natural fit for the role,” says NAWIC National President, Sandra Steele.
Established in 1995, the National Association of Women in Construction (NAWIC) is a not-for-profit organisation with a mission to raise the profile of women in the construction industry.
“I am very excited to be leading NAWIC’s work to promote the range of dynamic and challenging careers available for women in the construction industry, and to drive NAWIC’s ambitious agenda to increase support for women currently working in the industry,” Ms Moon says.
“While the construction industry is Australia’s sixth largest employer, the participation of women in the sector remains low. Just 12 per cent of those employed in the industry are women.
“We know that a diverse workforce is more effective one, and one of the best ways to boost productivity, attract talented employees and reduce skills shortages is to increase the participation of women in the sector. NAWIC has a unique position of influence within the construction industry and we will be working hard to strengthen this position,” Ms Moon adds.
“Sheryle’s expertise and experience has been recognised with her inclusion on multiple boards advising the Australian Government on attraction and retention strategies, particularly for young people and women. We look forward to capitalising on this experience to help NAWIC advance the careers and participation of women in Australia’s construction industry,” Ms Steele concludes.
