Our staff are committed to eliminating occupational segregation and barriers that prevent women from building careers in the trades and other nontraditional occupations.   We provide career education, training, support and job placement assistance to aspiring and existing tradeswomen, provide technical assistance to apprenticeship programs and other industry stakeholders to build their capacity to recruit and retain women, and advocate for policies and practices that support tradeswomen’s careers.
