This annual event provides an opportunity to the Massachusetts Building Trade Unions, Contractors, Developers, Government, and Community Organizations to network with high school women enrolled in Career and Technical Education programs who are interested in careers in the construction industry.
There is a booth fee this year of $250 for the Western Mass conference, and a $400 booth fee for the Eastern Mass Conference with a discount of $50 if attending both Eastern and Western MA conferences. Fees for government entities and community-based, small non-profits will not be charged at the discretion of the Steering Committee. Please place fee waiver requests through [email protected].
Massachusetts Girls in Trades was launched in 2015 by a partnership of educational, governmental, and union organizations with a shared goal of supporting and encouraging female career and technical education students and alumnae to pursue careers in the building trades.
If you are registering for both conferences, please register using the Eastern Conference link, and the $50 discount will be applied.
