Supporting Women to Succeed
This ground-breaking project aims to support employers to not only recruit trade-ready women into non-traditional trades, but also create thriving, healthy work cultures and environments for them to enter through a 12-month cultural change program through diversity and inclusion strategies.
About the Project
The Project is made up of two facets:
Remade for Trades Program – engaging with women who are interested in trades, and providing them with the tools and ongoing support to become trade ready, and
Workplace Diversity Project – this project has been designed to provide training, mentoring, resources and support for workplace supervisors to become champions of change in the workplace. As key influencers with the power to create change, supervisors will be provided with the tools and confidence to improve inclusion, strategies to improve mental health and wellbeing for workers as well as challenge behaviours and biases that create poor workplace culture and mental health. Workplace leaders will also be provided with guidance to empower workers to be part of the change too in order to create a holistically healthy and happy environment for all diverse groups, particularly for women.
The overall Project is supported by the Tasmanian Government’s Supporting Women to Succeed Grant Program. The Program supports organisations to undertake projects that drive cultural change to improve outcomes for women in Tasmania.
In addition, Keystone Tasmania has provided further contribution to the Workplace Diversity Project to support construction organisations to undertake cultural change and environmental transformation.
The Project is supported by the Tasmanian Government.
