Registration is open for free, 90-minute virtual sessions designed for women to explore high-wage careers within the construction trades.

This is a new opportunity to learn about low-cost or no-cost training programs and job opportunities in a variety of high-wage and in-demand construction careers in Maine.

Connecting Women to Construction Trades will be offered on Wednesday, March 16, 2022 online; participants can choose a daytime or evening session:

Daytime session: Wednesday, March 16, 10:00 – 11:30 a.m.

Evening session: Wednesday, March 16, 6:00 – 7:30 p.m.

“Our experience is that women do not often consider careers in the trades because they haven’t seen female role models working in these areas,” said Suzanne Senechal-Jandreau, New Ventures Maine Workforce Development Manager. “We want to provide current information to women not only about training, education, and earn-while-you-learn opportunities, but also good-paying trade jobs with benefits that currently exist in our state.”

Connecting Women to Construction Trades sessions are supported by the Maine Department of Transportation.
