Prime Minister of Tasmania – Inviting women and girls to be part of something big during National Skills Week


August 27, 2022

Jo Palmer, Minister for Women

National Skills Week is a fantastic time for women and girls to consider career opportunities in Tasmania’s growing building and construction industry.

The Government of Tasmania is proud to partner with Keystone Tasmania, providing $65,000 to the Be Part of Building Something Big campaign and website.

Through this campaign, we are sharing incredible stories of women in building and construction, and I hope this will inspire more women and girls to take up these opportunities and get involved in building Tasmania’s future. .

The website provides career advice, information on qualifications and training support, as well as the opportunity to schedule a conversation with someone working in the industry.

I commend the Keystone team for this wonderful resource and inspiring campaign that shines a light on the opportunities available to women and girls – potentially opportunities they have never considered before.

It is more important than ever that we have women at the forefront of a stronger and more resilient Tasmania, which is why the Tasmanian Government is investing in programs to improve women’s participation in the workforce.

By unlocking the full labor potential of our economy, we can ensure women have greater economic security and be empowered to participate and hold leadership positions.

I am convinced that through this collaboration, we will see more women flourish in the construction industry. By working together we can create a stronger and more equal Tasmania.
