The Collective Issue 36 August 2016

When I undertook a fairly large home renovation project in 2016, as a female managing my project, it struck me there weren’t many female tradies in the industry. I met Rachael Turner who runs her own construction business and ended up engaging her to look after my kitchen renovation. Always on the look out for story ideas, I pitched an idea to the Collective Magazine about females working in traditionally male dominated industries.

The features editor preferred I do a story on women in the construction industry. This is the story they published about women working in the construction industry and the challenges they face. On Site
