Tradeswomen Social Hours

The 3rd Wednesday of Every Month

With only 8% of the construction workforce identifying as female, it can be a challenge to get the support you need to grow in your career. These monthly gatherings are a place where you can connect in a casual setting to share with each other, help each other, and chat with OTW staff about resources you might need. We look forward to seeing you!
