On Wednesday, 23 August, 2017, QBCC Commissioner Brett Bassett, Assistant Commissioner Esther Blest, and several QBCC female staff members who work to support the State’s licensed plumbers and drainers attended the Female Plumbers and Apprentices Breakfast at Parliament House, in Brisbane.

Women in Plumbing Breakfast

Today female plumbing licensees rubbed shoulders with the Minister for Housing and Public Works and Minister for Science and Innovation, the Honourable Leeanne Enoch MP, and the QBCC Acting Commissioner, Kellie Lowe, at the inaugural Women in Plumbing Breakfast.

This event was held in order to recognise the contribution of women to the plumbing industry in Queensland.

Plumbing, like many trades, has been a male-dominated industry for many years, although the past few years have seen an increase in the number of women getting licensed.
