Skills Work for Women® Conferences

Skills Canada NL

Skills Work for Women® Conferences encourage school-aged females to consider careers in under represented fields of skilled trades and technologies.  

These conferences are made available through funding provided by the Province of Newfoundland and Labrador's Department of Education and Early Childhood Development. 

Skills Work for Women® Conferences occur over a two-part day. Participants begin with hands-on Try-A-Trade Demonstrations which allows young them to handle tools used in various trade and technology areas and to test their abilities on a sample project. In the many cases, participants have never worked with such equipment before. The second part of the day involves an empowering mentoring session with female role models who are currently employed in the skilled sector.
