Congratulations to Kayla Hogg, Hindmarsh Cadet, who recently won the Capital Student of the Year category at the NAWIC ACT Crystal Vision Awards!
When asked about this achievement, Kayla said, “I am very grateful to receive this award. I wouldn’t be able to achieve what I have without the full support of Hindmarsh, along with my amazing colleagues and family. I feel very fortunate to have started with Hindmarsh just coming out of year 12 and being given the flexibility to finish my schooling and start my development in the industry at a very young age. I am excited to continue my journey in the construction industry with Hindmarsh.”
The Crystal Vision Awards celebrate the achievement of individuals, businesses or organisations that actively promote and encourage participation and career progression of women in the construction or related industries. These awards celebrate continuing commitment towards advancing the interests of women in the construction industry as a whole, using examples such as establishing policies, supporting legislation and creating unique organisational initiatives.
Nadine O’Keeffe, Hindmarsh Project Director said, “It has been an absolute pleasure to see Kayla continue her learning and develop in her role with Hindmarsh. The Capital Region Student of the Year Award provides Kayla with the recognition she deserves of her career path choices and provides a platform for her to share her story with other women joining the construction industry.”
Karen Goddard, National Quality & Customer Service Manager added, “Kayla has set her career aspirations on breaking into a typical very male dominated construction Site Manager role which I think is well within her capabilities & sights, this award both proves and sets her well on her way.”
At Hindmarsh, diversity, equity, and inclusion are at the core of who we are and how we operate. We strive to foster belonging and empowerment across our sites, people, and day-to-day lives. We strive to build and nurture a culture where inclusiveness is a reflex, not an initiative.
