Webinar: Respectful Workplaces and Health & Safety Empowerment for Women in Trades

October 25 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am

Transportation organizations and private contractors alike face significant
difficulty in recruiting and retaining personnel for highway construction
and other infrastructure projects. Lack of diversity within the trades has
exacerbated labor shortages. This webinar explores research conducted
on the experience of women and minorities in highway construction and
the trades. The research pinpoints issues that specifically affect women on
the job site. Webinar speakers will present research results and describe
how that research served to inform pilot programs in both Oregon and
Washington to foster respectful workplaces, and to improve health and
safety for women in the trades.

Target Audience

Apprenticeship and worker advocacy programs, construction industry,
local, state and transportation agencies, OJT/Civil Rights divisions, women
in trades community, education and research institutions
