Not just Surviving but Thriving on the Job: Tips and Tools for Women in Trades

Tuesday, September 15, 2015 | 10 am to 11 am (PST)

If you’re a woman working in the construction trades, or thinking about a career in construction, we invite you to join in our Free Mentor Advisory Forum. Learn from experienced women business owners, who have owned and operated construction companies, and receive tips and tools to help you stay positive and to grow in your career.

You will gain information about successful strategies that will help you to take an active part in shaping the construction site workplace culture. This phone-in session will also provide you with an opportunity to ask our panelists questions about working in trades.
