Show your support for women in trades TODAY
Mykenzee was living the life she was “supposed” to live: a 9-to-5 office job and a house in her hometown.
The problem was, none of it was satisfying. Mykenzee had always loved machines, but in her family women just didn’t go into trades.
That is, they didn’t until the day Mykenzee graduated from WBF and left town. Today she’s living her own dream as a heavy equipment operator.
Women Building Futures’ work has always been to give more women the opportunity to experience a rewarding career in the skilled trades.
Part of that work is to give women the confidence and support to step outside their comfort zone. And we need your help.
Send a message of support with the hashtag #itsherturn on Facebook or Twitter, and let’s show women like Mykenzee they can succeed in the skilled trades.
