Since the 70s, the number of women employed in the Mechanical, Industrial, Technical, Trades ( MITT ) have hovered around 3%.
Without any real tangible progress. Progress is attainable with calculated actions. One actionable solution, "PUT TOOLS IN THE HANDS OF GIRLS SOONER."
My name is Judaline Cassidy. I have been successful working in construction for over twenty years as a Plumber in New York City. From the moment I started working with tools, as a Union Plumber, the unconfident, vulnerable and the feeling unworthiness of my place in this world went away. Now as a Tradeswoman I'm the Wonder Women, I always wanted to be as a young girl.
Shouldn't we teach our girls and boys that jobs don't have a gender?
Being the exception might be ok for some people. but for me no.
I want professions like mine to be normal and excepted for women and girls everywhere.
The only way that we can support women and girls, is if we whole heartily INVEST IN THEM!.
By making a donation or becoming a monthly donor, you can, and will make a meaningful difference. Your donations will help us fund our free monthly workshops in carpentry, electrical, welding and plumbing offered to women and girls in New York City.
It will also enable us to have the ability to offer sixty girls ages six to nineteen a week-long free Summer Construction Skills Camp.
Together we can move this number that seems unmovable in the last forty years, 3% really, in almost forty years.
This should be unacceptable since we keep telling girls the can be anything they want to be.
Well...... except maybe an Engineer, Plumber, IronWorker or President. When you inspire a girl today, you're empowering the woman she will become.
Help us Expose, Inspire and Mentor future Tradeswomen with the arsenal they need to be successful in life. This can only be done with your donations and support.
Thank You for Donating.
