TWI is an affirmative action/equal opportunity employer.

Tradeswomen, Inc. has been a support and advocacy organization for women in the building trades since 1979. TWI’s mission is to increase the number of women working in the building trades and to ensure that they can thrive in their construction careers. The three keys to achieving this goal are:

  • Recruitment: Inform women and girls about trades career opportunities, targeting women in low income communities;
  • Retention: Provide support services needed to enable women to stay in the trades – especially mentoring, child care, support networks, and eliminating sexual harassment and discrimination;
  • Leadership Development: Provide women with the skills to advance on the job and in their unions and in other ways; create tradeswomen forums to enact policy reforms that will enhance recruitment and retention; help train women in leadership roles within TWI
