From the commencement of her career, Jo Farrell has wanted to make a significant impact and positive contribution to the industry. Starting as an apprentice carpenter to now the General Manager of the Kane Constructions ACT branch, Jo continues to successfully foster an inclusive and welcoming workplace for all.
By mentoring female apprentices, creating the Build Like a Girl not-for-profit organisation and managing the female trade-built Strathnairn Charity House project, Jo has been putting action behind her words for years.
Kane would like to congratulate Jo as a finalist for the Master Builders and Asset Construction Hire Excellence Awards first time ever category Construction Woman of the Year.
“Jo is a respected leader in the construction sector. A leader who is not just talking about change, she is being the change. With building in her blood, and an all-consuming mission to see more women in construction, Jo is creating a better workplace for those who will follow in her footsteps for years to come.”
Philippa Seldon, Operations Manager, Kane Constructions ACT
“Jo is renowned for being an extremely hard and conscientious worker. It brings us great pleasure to have her as part of the Kane team, and we wish her the best of luck for the upcoming award.”
