This year was the first year of the Annual Construction Trades Convention: Women at Work. Rockford Housing Authority and Project First Rate are pleased with the number of attendees and local businesses participating in such a fantastic resource. Here is a highlight of some of the topics that were covered in the convention:
The Construction Trade Convention: Women at Work was an opportunity to learn from women in the trades such as construction, painting, and electricians. This was an opportunity to explore the Apprentice Trainee Positions available. The trades industry is a male-dominated career, but many women still work and love these jobs. Rockford Housing Authority and Project First Rate are excited for our convention next year.
