CREW Boston

Women in Construction: Trends, Opportunities & Challenges

Massachusetts Housing Partnership
​160 Federal Street, Boston MA

Members Only

CREW Boston is looking forward to hosting Susan Moir and Danielle Skilling for an informative and lively discussion about the outlook for tradeswomen in Massachusetts.  Susan and Danielle will share their own experience in creating opportunities and access for women in construction.  They will also talk about the important work of the Policy Group on Tradeswomen's Issues to tackle both the supply and demand sides of increasing female participation in the construction workforce.  This should be an engaging discussion that can help inform our own efforts to enhance women's participation on the ground in our work! Please join CREW Boston's Housing & Community Development Committee for this brown bag lunch.
