dc.description.abstract This paper will explore gender diversity through the representation of women in several non-traditional industries in Australia. The construction, project management and academic sectors have been selected as they are perceived to be disciplines that are dominated by men. Through identifying what research has been undertaken and the programs that have been instigated through industry associations, an agenda for addressing gender diversity can be established. A review of the political environment in which these non-traditional sectors operate provides a framework to understand the policies and laws that guide gender diversity in Australia. The Federal Government are conducting a review into the Equal Opportunity for Women in the Workplace Act 1999 (the EOWW Act) and the Equal Opportunity for Women in the Workplace Agency (EOWA). Through providing inclusive reforms, men and women will have the opportunity to work in a fair and equitable society where gender is not an issue. en_US
