Winslow buddies with NAWIC

Winslow collaborates with various groups to provide opportunities to different community groups, and we value using and passing on knowledge.

Chaya, a Winslow Constructors Site Engineer, has been mentoring university students studying for careers in the construction industry.

The Buddy Program is run by the National Association of Women in Construction (NAWIC) Victoria Education Committee to help students navigate the transition from university to industry, and successfully integrate into the workforce.

The program is available for Engineering, Construction Management, Project Management and Architecture students of all genders.

Chaya is one of 33 ‘buddies’ who have volunteered to participate in the program to mentor one to two students.

“I wanted to participate as I had an interesting journey into the industry,” Chaya said.

“I also wanted to promote Winslow’s priority to employ people who show initiative and promise.”
