Event detail

HIA Building Women aims to help build an industry where women can thrive. 

The purpose is to celebrate the achievements and contributions that women have made in building and trades, planning, architecture, design, legal services, and a variety of other building professions across the residential building industry. 

Our guests, regardless of gender, walk away from Building Women events feeling part of a community. A community that brings together the future leaders and innovators of the construction industry as well as offering networking opportunities where you will leave feeling uplifted and inspired.

Join HIA and our MC, Gemma Acton at Doltone House Hyde Park for an afternoon filled with laughter, food and friends as we celebrate International Women's Day.

Not only will you enjoy a delicious three course lunch, but you will also be captivated by Dr Kylie Moore-Gilbert's fascinating story of her 804 days in an Iran prison as well as hearing from our panel of experts.


Gemma Acton - MC

MC and Panel Facilitator

Gemma is currently the Network Finance Editor at 7 News - the most-watched news service in Australia.

Gemma also gained an MBA/MA from the Lauder Institute and the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania, a BA from University College London, and the highly prestigious Chartered Financial Analyst qualification.

Dr Kylie Moore-Gilbert

Keynote Speaker and Panelists

Kylie is the author of the remarkable memoir The Uncaged Sky, which details the 804 days she spent as a political prisoner in Iran. Held for a year in solitary confinement, Kylie was pushed to her limits by extreme physical and psychological deprivation.

Kylie has been a vocal advocate for human and women’s rights in Iran and has campaigned in support of other victims of arbitrary detention around the world.

Dominique Gill

Industry Speaker and Panelist

Dominique has been working in construction for over 20 years. After working nine years in one of Australia’s largest construction companies, Dominique established her own company in 2016. Urban Core is the first female-led start-up of its kind and is already defining a new generation in Australian construction.

A vocal champion for women in construction, she actively encourages the promotion of the industry to a younger generation. In 2022 she launched an exciting program, “NexGen” to address female representation in construction. NexGen is a multi-state program where female leaders in construction present to girls’ schools and talk about the rewards of working in the industry.
