Emma Sckrabei

2019 - ACT Woman of the Year

Emma Sckrabei was awarded the 2019 ACT Woman of the Year.

She is the driving force behind Ginninderry's Training & Employment Initiative, SPARK. Emma is a true advocate for inclusion in the trade industry, ensuring all participants have the right to learn and succeed regardless of age, gender, culture or background, particularly removing barriers and stigma for women within the male-dominated construction industry.

In 2018, in partnership with Career Shop and the ACT Government Office for Women, Emma launched the first SPARK program specifically for women – the Women Return to Work Workshop Program. The program comprises a series of workshops aimed at helping women return to the workforce.

Emma personally, and the programs she has been associated with have been recognised through a variety of Awards.
