By the year 2020, the federal government has stated that 319,000 new jobs will be required in the construction sector alone. This makes the need for more skilled workers today stronger than ever! Raising awareness and providing resources is key to attracting more women to a career in the skilled trades.
With this in mind, the Manitoba Construction Sector Council, Manitoba Home Builders’ Association, Manitoba Heavy Construction Association, Manitoba Building Trades, and Winnipeg Construction Association are hosting a first-of-its-kind, 2-day long Manitoba Women in Trades Conference, February 18-19th, 2020 (7:30am-4:00pm) at the Victoria Inn Hotel & Conference Centre in Winnipeg, MB. The conference is geared toward women who need support, guidance, and connections to make their construction career a success, as well as to employers, superintendents, project managers and estimators to identify ways to recruit, retain and support women in trades.
