The latest Getting Women into Trades event was a sellout! And we think it was our best yet. Attendees had the opportunity to winch a car, tile a shower floor, practice their digger skills and weild some powertools.
We were then inspired by our wonderful Mitre 10 Trade Awardee Flora Rivers Keynote Speech (more on that soon!) and learnt a lot about being a woman in the trades from our panelists.
Some lucky attendees even took away prizes - including a TV!!!
We couldn't do it without our sponsors! Show them some love and check out their social media and websites for all the cool stuff they are doing to support women in trades:
