Hats Off!


The U.S. Department of Labor recently awarded a National Equity contract to Chicago Women in Trades’ National Center for Women’s Equity in Apprenticeship and Employment as part of a $20.4 million initiative to expand apprenticeship opportunities around the country, with a particular emphasis on expanding access to apprenticeships among women, people of color, and other underrepresented populations. The Center will work with a consortium of 10 organizations representing nearly every staffed tradeswomen’s organization in the country and national subject matter experts.  Read the full press release  here .
