Women's Infrastructure Network NZ


The Women’s Infrastructure Network (WIN), was launched by Infrastructure NZ at the Building Nations Symposium in October 2016. The purpose of this group is to increase the number of women in leadership roles, grow the visibility of women, and to provide a networking and support group for women in the infrastructure sector. In partnership with Infrastructure NZ, WIN hosts events, advocates for greater representation of women in the sector, and provides opportunities and tools, such as our LinkedIn group for women to connect with each other. We are proud to facilitate a diverse network of women at all levels working across the New Zealand infrastructure sector. WIN NZ is also connected to the global WIN network, operating in Canada, the USA, UK and Australia.


WIN Initiatives

Over the last year, WIN has set up seven chapters in Northland, Auckland, Waikato, Wellington, Christchurch, Otago and Queenstown. WIN has hosted events nationwide and today has a nationwide membership of over 1000 women.  

As part of the 2017 work programme, the WIN Advisory Board undertook a survey on diversity and inclusion in the infrastructure sector. The results showed that the under representation of women is perceived as a real issue for the infrastructure industry, that many organisations have goals to increase the representation of women, however progress towards increasing representation of women is slow to moderate at best, and organisations need assistance on how to do this. WIN’s initiatives aim to address this need.

Women in Focus

WIN NZ has been established to grow the visibility of women in the infrastructure sector and is open to women of all levels. Every month we will be profiling a different woman working in a different part of the infrastructure sector. If you would like to be featured, please contact Natasha or phone 09 377 5570 for more details.
