Northwest Washington Council of Tradeswomen Equity Summit
February 27 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Join SHIFT, ANEW, and NAWIC for the first annual Northwest Washington Council of Tradeswomen Equity Summit. Listen and share best practices on recruiting, retaining, and supporting women and LGBTQ individuals in non-traditional occupations. The Equity Summit will include a showing of the short film, Sista in the Brotherhood. This 20-minute film features a tradeswoman of color who faces discrimination on a new job site and must choose between making a stand or keeping her job. The event will also include guest speakers, table discussions, and networking opportunities. Participants will include those working in the construction trades, engineering, advanced manufacturing, automotive, aquaculture, refinery, and vocational education occupations. Dinner will be provided.
SHIFT is a student-centered initiative that is working to develop a community of inclusion and equity for all individuals in skilled trades and engineering occupations at Bellingham Technical College and beyond.
