According to Ontario Colleges, there is a perception that girls will not excel in skilled trade careers such as construction, manufacturing, automotive, mining, welding, and more (Reference: https://www.ontariocolleges.ca/en/apply/skilled-trades/women).
Since our programs are designed to break stereotypes, we are creating exposure to girls to learn about skilled trades, and access to competitive and fascinating workplaces. Promoting women to work in skilled trades also promotes entrepreneurship, independence and autonomy within the field.
Our workshops include professional women in skilled trades providing mentorship and presenting as guest speakers. In addition, we seek tours and opportunities from local businesses to guide girls into a new field.
Dismantling stereotypes, and creating opportunities for girls to succeed.
Trade workshops help to expose young women to opportunities tailored for their success.
Imagine a world where all women believed in their abilities, their self-worth, and their power. Imagine a world where women could choose their path because they were empowered, supported and guided.
Through our trade workshops, we connect young girls and young women with women involved in the trades. These women are well established in their careers, they own their businesses, and they are passionate about supporting our girls.
