How we are structured and what we do
Tradeswomen Australia Group is comprised of Tradeswomen Australia and Tradeswomen Australia Community Foundation.
Together, we’re a non-profit organisation working to increase the representation of women in skilled trade roles. We aim for gender equality and empowerment for all women to access, participate and succeed in trades.
At our Community Foundation, we work to support women of all life experiences into long-term financial security through careers in trades.
We do this through:
- School Programming There are a wide variety of opportunities within the trades industry for all genders, which is why we’re working so hard to make more students aware. We’ve brought our school programming to over 4,000 secondary school students so far across Victoria. We educate about the variety of roles available, the women who currently work in them, and where the students can seek further information.
- Community Programming – Our Remade for Trades program supports women into securing a career in the trade industry. The program links women to a great network, willing employers, support services and the potential for lifelong financial security.
- Apprenticeship Engagement Officers – Our experts are here to help any woman find an apprenticeship or job at gender-safe, secure workplace.
- Jobs Boards – Our jobs board is regularly updated with the latest full-time, part-time, and contract jobs and apprenticeships with vetted employers across Australia.
We’re working hard to increase female representation to more than 2% of Australia’s trade industry workforce. The challenge is considerable, with many barriers in place, but we’re getting closer every day thanks to the help of our community partners and supporters. If we work together, we believe all women from all backgrounds will succeed in trades careers.
