• Shauna Moore wins Crystal Vision Award at NAWIC VIC Awards for Excellence
  • Caitlin Moloney wins Outstanding Student Award at NAWIC VIC Awards for Excellence

Congratulations and kudos to ACCIONA's Shauna Moore, who took out the John Holland Crystal Vision Award at the 2021 National Association of Women in Construction’s Victorian Awards Presentation Dinner.

The sold-out event was held in the Savoy Ballroom at the Grand Hyatt Melbourne and live streamed, and Shauna was on hand to collect her award.

From NAWIC VICTORIA’s LinkedIn page: “Judges were inspired by Shauna’s tireless endeavours for the progression of women in the industry by way of driving new initiatives now embedded into Coleman Rail and the Southern Program Alliance (SPA) way of business.

“This broad scope included highlights such as establishing the SPA Women in Construction Committee, installing female sanitary stations in all site toilets, reviewing procedures to close the pay gap between genders, implementing miscarriage leave companywide, and Cultural Change Workshops that identify and tackle key issues and barriers facing women in construction.

“Shauna has brought initiatives into her community by developing key activities such as hi-vis dress-up days for primary schools, a one week Year 10 Work Experience program, and site walks/open days for primary and secondary students.

“In addition, Shauna has written a book, predominantly for female students in Grade 3 and 4, about careers in construction.

“Shauna’s contribution to the progression of women in the industry particularly by identifying opportunities to inspire early childhood development is exceptional.

“The judges foresee Shauna will continue to inspire more females to begin a career in construction which will positively develop the industry as a whole.”

Congratulations to Caitlin Moloney, who took out the ACCIONA Outstanding Student, Apprentice or Trainee Award at the 2021 National Association of Women in Construction’s Victorian Awards Presentation Dinner on Friday night.

On receiving her award, Caitlin said: “Thank you NAWIC VICTORIA for the recognition and for the beautiful evening. And thank you to ACCIONA for supporting me as I build the foundations of my career. I am proud to be a woman in engineering and a woman in construction.”

From NAWIC VICTORIA’s LinkedIn page: “Caitlin’s achievements extend across her education, community service and work experience, and has proved her to be an outstanding applicant and well-deserved winner for the ACCIONA Student, Apprentice or Trainee Award.

“She is committed far beyond participation in course work throughout her education, from challenging the status quo in careers for women in high school through to participation in humanitarian organisations and mentoring during her tertiary education.

“Caitlin’s contributions to her community through volunteer work, coaching and tutoring, along with her ability create her own opportunities and strong work ethic, has gained her experience and achievements beyond her years.”
