Paul Kremer

In this very special guest episode about women in construction, I talk to Tamika Smith who is the founder and director of Top 100 Women, who’s made it her mission to build up women in the construction industry.  Top 100 Women supports women entering the industry, and gives them the support they need to build long and meaningful careers. Now people from the industry are flocking to Top 100 Women, to get the expertise and advice that can help them retain the women in their workforce. “We know the retention rates are quite low for women in construction,” 

Tamika says. “Hence why we’re getting approached by a number of educational providers and large scale companies who want the support for their women.” Builders Academy Australia is proud to be partnered with Top 100 Women and be able to draw on the experience and expertise of someone like Tamika. When we spoke to Tamika recently, she shared how she got involved in building and construction, and how she’s helping to transform the future of our industry.

We talk about what women bring to the construction sector, how empathy can shape the way our industry can support a more inclusive approach. Tamika tells the story of humanity and support for those in need (Kelly's Story) and we discuss the role of women in the construction workforce moving forward.
