Johnstone Construction are Finalists in Governance NZ Awards

One of our founding sponsors, Johnstone Construction Ltd, is a finalist in the national Women in Governance Awards. They are up for Gender Diverse Organisation of the Year.

The judges said that the standard of entries was particularly high this year, making judging a difficult task, so we are very proud of our friends at Johnstone Construction for making it to the finals.

A special mention must be made of our own Women in Trades Treasurer Krissy Danford who is part of the Leadership team at Johnstone Construction. Krissy is a wonderful advocate and supporter of women in construction and the trades.

Managing Director Hugh Johnstone credits the efforts across the company from the site teams to the boardroom with providing an inclusive and supportive workplace for people from a diversity of backgrounds. He is particularly proud of having women at every level of the company after a concerted recruitment effort by the leadership team.

Their latest recruit, Carpentry Apprentice Flora Rivers, came to Johnstone Construction after first meeting some of the team during a "Give it a Go" activity at the Auckland 2018 Women in Trades event!

Congratulations to the team at Johnstone Construction and we wish them well for the Awards.
