The Auckland Women’s Infrastructure Network and The Infrastructure Collective, in association with Beca and MATES in Construction are delighted to welcome WIN and TIC members and their senior managers (male or female) to our 2022 charity event. This year we are delighted to showcase MATES in Construction.
MATES in Construction is a non-profit industry funded organisation which relies on the support of partners to provide suicide prevention workplace training and ongoing support to our teams working across all facets of construction. The construction industry has the highest number of suicides of any commercial sector in New Zealand and MATES is determined, working collaboratively with all our stakeholders across the industry to turn those numbers around. Suicide is preventable, but we can’t make progress without everyone in the construction sector working together.
Join us at the Beca Auditorium to complete General Awareness Training and learn how you can support workmates experiencing stress. You will also hear more about MATES and how to support this important kaupapa, before having some drinks and nibbles with colleagues.
We welcome everyone to come as they are – work boots and high-vis through to corporate attire are equally welcome – and we encourage you to register your boss to attend too so they can also learn about the great work that MATES in Construction are doing to support our people across the construction sector and encourage positive wellbeing.
As CEO at Mates in Construction our focus is on improving the mental health and well-being of construction workers. We are an industry suicide prevention organisation tasked with raising awareness and reducing the stigma of mental health. We provide the tools to help build a strong and sustainable workforce, that can seek help, offer help and accept help.
