Women In Trade Event
31st August 2019 @ 11:30 am - 4:00 pm
This one-day event, hosted by Bristol Women’s Voice in partnership with M-Shed, celebrates the women working in trade within our city, while highlighting routes into the industry and the challenges that women face.
The day offers an interesting, varied and exciting programme including keynote speakers, panel discussions from Women who are working in the trade industry, demonstration workshops and an historical talk.
The construction and trade industry in the city is booming and women unfortunately are in the minority within those roles. Although being a self employed trades person could provide flexibility and a good income to women, the number of women involved in or entering the industry remains fairly low. There are women in our city who are plumbers, electricians and plasters etc but they are not easy to find, we also want to encourage more women into this industry from all age groups.
Bristol Women’s Voice Women in Trade event aims to provide a space for women in trade to come together, while encouraging more women into the industry. Please find the programme for the day here: Women in Trade Program
