2019 Trades Women Build Nations Conference: Minneapolis
With generous support from our partners at the NoVo Foundation and Tools & Tiaras, we are pleased to announce that we will be sending a CWC delegation to the 2019 Trades Women Build Nations Conference, held October 4-6 in Minneapolis, MN at the Hilton Minneapolis. Community building and leadership development are at the heart of our coalition. Sending workers to this conference supports each individual directly, creates more opportunities and outlets for tradeswomxn to participate in their unions and advocate for themselves, and shores up a solid pipeline of high-paying building trades jobs for womxn.
If you would like to apply for funding to attend this conference, please fill out the form below. In order to broaden our community of trades union activists, we are giving preference to workers from under-represented trades, like Insulators, Roofers, Cement Masons, Boilermakers, etc., and to first-time conference goers, regardless of how long you've been in the trades.
All NYC building tradeswomxn are encouraged to apply!
Our mission is to unite workers through rank-and-file engagement. We work to increase the number of tradeswomen by developing leadership, providing mentorship, and addressing issues of retention. We advance policies that support tradeswomen and union values.
