Price FREE Get tickets

Event description

Are you interested in a career change? Curious about the challenges of being a woman in the trades? Not sure which trade or training path is right for you? Then Women in Trades are running the event for you!

We are a not-for-profit showcasing the benefits and rewarding careers you can have in the trades. We are in our 8th year of running this exciting and immersive event, especially for women.

Come along to:

  • meet potential employers, industry training providers, tertiary institutes and industry organisations
  • interact with a lively panel of trades gurus
  • learn the next steps to undertake your trades training and career.

The event is in two parts:

First, get hands-on and try different trades in our 'Give it a Go' segment. Try your hand at some fun tradie skills and talk with experienced people (and tradeswomen!) from across the trades. You'll learn about career paths, training and job opportunities.

We'll hear from an interactive panel after some delicious kai (free!). A tradeswoman working on the tools will share her journey and insights. An interactive panel of tradeswomen will share their journeys and insights. The panel will also discuss the ins and outs and unique challenges for women of the tradie life.

There will be time after the panel to continue to give things a go or find out more information about the opportunities discussed in the panel.

Secondary School Students, please see your Careers Department for more information.
