Join us for Women in Trades & Technology (WITT) Wednesdays where you can connect with the WITT team.
The Zoom sessions are from 12 - 1 p.m. each Wednesday. The sessions are open to anyone (public, students, female, male, LGBTQ2S+) and will focus on Trade and Technology questions.
The WITT program helped me discover potential careers that I wouldn’t have realized before taking part in one of their workshops. It was a safe, helpful environment where I was able to learn so much. With the help of some wonderful people at WITT I was given the encouragement and confidence to decide the next step towards my future. Pre-employment welding was the best choice for me. After the intro to welding and valuable experience I gained in the WITT workshop it wasn’t a difficult jump for me to make. I strongly encourage everyone to go to a workshop. There are always skills to learn and experience is to gain.
