Chicago Women in Trades Open House

October 30, 2018 | By: Jessica Helmer

Tuesday October 30th members of the ATD team attended the Chicago Women In Trades. Led by tradeswomen, CWIT continues to work toward changing these statistics by providing support and education to tradeswomen; increasing training for women and girls to enter nontraditional jobs; providing technical assistance to employers, unions, and other tradeswomen groups; documenting trends in the nontraditional workplace; and advocating for improved policies and practices that support women’s access to nontraditional training and jobs, as well as success and safety on the job. Executive Director Jayne Vellinga gave tours throughout the evening of the space. Above are some pictures!!
