Uranium producer Orano Canada’s gift aims to help expand support for trades training mentorship and hands-on learning for women living close to mining operations.
Orano Canada is empowering the future for women in technical trades with a $1 million gift to Saskatchewan Polytechnic’s Women in Trades and Technology (WITT) program. This generous investment will increase awareness and promote training opportunities for women in trades across Saskatchewan.
WITT works with instructors, employers, professionals and non-profits to build curriculum for camps, workshops and mentorship programs that teach women valuable skills, encourage women to think about different career options and address barriers that may limit women in trades and technologies.
