Women in Trades

Why skilled trades?

The skilled trades workforce is predominantly male - in fact women only represent 3 to 5 per cent.



Mohawk CE featured women in trades

An anonymous research survey about women working in the skilled trades was recently undertaken, and closed on February 28, 2018. For those that took the survey, we thank you. 

Your participation helped us:

  • Gain an understanding of the current local skilled trades workplace environment
  • Identify ways to help women explore opportunities in skilled trades through communication and education

The study is expected to be completed April 2018, and a summary of results will be posted on this page.
