Women in Trades Career Expo
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 7th 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
- listen to an inspiring Keynote speech
- 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.
After some delicious kai (free!), we'll hear from a Keynote Speaker. A tradeswoman working on the tools will share her journey and insights. An interactive panel discussion about the ins and outs and unique challenges for women of the tradie life follows this.
