JSA celebrate women in construction

Recently, two members of our design team had the privilege of attending the 2017 Crystal vision awards hosted by the National Association of Women in Construction. The invitation came as a result of an ongoing relationship with the association driven by a unified passion for creating positive change in the community.

The National Association for Women in Construction (NAWIC) first approached JSA in March of this year looking for a graphic design company to assist with the creation of a range of collateral for their awards night. In exchange for this work, JSA were listed as a sponsor for the not-for-profit organisation.

Attending the event on behalf of the JSA team were Designer, Teagan Markey and Account Manager, Nadine Thiedeke who were largely responsible for facilitating and developing the suite of collateral.

When asked about becoming a sponsor for NAWIC, JSA’s managing director, Jeremy Bews said it was an easy decision to make.

‘Aside from valuing a balanced workforce, at JSA we love working with clients to create positive change in Brisbane and beyond. Working with NAWIC has given us the opportunity to shine a light on an area that typically gets overlooked.’

This determination to shine a light aligned perfectly with the theme of the awards evening ‘choose to shine’, putting outstanding female construction workers in the spotlight, and driving forward the next generation of females in the industry.

With 4% of construction workers being female, NAWIC are determined to make the voice of the female construction workforce heard and JSA couldn’t be prouder to play a part.

‘It’s been fantastic to help shine a light on these deserving professionals, and moreso, it’s given us the opportunity to reflect the values that we are passionate about into the wider community.’

JSA are passionate about working with not-for-profit organisations and have previously worked with organisations such as LiveBetter, Community Services Industry Alliance (CSIA), Healthy Land and Water, Cerebral Palsy League (CPL), and Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Community Health Services.
