Build Together is a national program that promotes, supports and mentors women in the skilled construction trades. Two of our main objectives with the Build Together program are: Exposing Women to the Trades- Both women and men need equal exposure to the trades in order to consider it as a career. Women get less exposure because they have historically been steered away from the trades. The Build Together program operates a classroom speaking program to connect students with strong female role models that are active in the industry. Mentoring Women in the Trades- Support for women in the trades should not stop at recruitment. Mentorship is a key pillar of apprenticeship and women need guidance from tradeswomen who are successful and thriving in the industry.
