Women in Nontraditional Careers (WINC) Institute 2021
Tuesday, january 26, 2021
Women make great trades workers, yet these career pathways are often out of sight and out of reach for most women and girls. As older workers retire in manufacturing, construction, and transit, and COVID unemployment forces workers to reconsider their work lives, now is the time to encourage a more diverse workforce to enter and stay in these financially rewarding careers.
Registration gives you access to all of the virtual sessions.
Who should attend:
Our focus is on 3 industries in the Philadelphia region: construction, manufacturing and transit. We welcome tradeswomen and allies from industry, unions, education/training, government and nonprofits.
Learn best practices, network and celebrate the resilience of Philadelphia-area tradeswomen during the challenges of this past year.
- Workshops on best practices for recruiting and retaining women, practical safety and health tips for tradeswomen, mentorship models to retain tradeswomen
- Hear from tradeswomen about their experiences
- Discover new resources to encourage and support more youth and adult women to build their careers in the trades in construction, manufacturing and transit
