The Association of Women in Construction (Singapore) was officially registered on May 27th, 2019, with the guidance and support of our international affiliate, the National Association of Women in Construction Australia. Our humble beginning took place at the 7th BuildTech Asia event, where ladies from various sectors and countries gathered to discuss how we can support and sustain women's participation and development in an industry traditionally perceived as "not for women".

Under the leadership of the conference Organising Chairman Er. Emily Tan, a working group volunteered to set up AWiCS (Singapore), to grow and empower women professionals, inspire young adults, and create valuable connections.


To be a catalyst for change, to drive forward a new era of female representation and leadership within the built environment industry. We aim to break down barriers, challenge stereotypes, and build bridges for greater inclusivity and equality. We want to establish a community to connect, champion, and support one another to flourish and achieve our fullest potential.
