Women in Trades: Just Do It!
Bronte Fraser-Mooney, Cabinet Maker Apprentice

Women have made significant strides in breaking down barriers and entering fields that are traditionally dominated by men. One area where this is particularly evident is in non-traditional trades. While these industries have traditionally been male-dominated, women are now making their mark in fields such as plumbing, construction, electrical work, and welding.

There are many reasons why women are drawn to these fields. For some, it may be the satisfaction of working with their hands and seeing tangible results from their efforts. Others may appreciate the independence and autonomy that come with working in a trade. Still, others may simply be drawn to the challenge of succeeding in a male-dominated industry.

Despite these motivations, women still face significant challenges when it comes to pursuing careers in non-traditional trades. However, in the face of challenges, women are finding ways to succeed in non-traditional trades. Many are taking advantage of training programs and apprenticeships that provide them with the skills and knowledge they need to succeed in these industries. Others are forming networks and support groups to help them navigate the challenges they face.

Bronte who is a young Cabinet Maker Apprentice says, 'if you want to do a trade, just do it'!

Sarina Russo Apprenticeships support women in non-traditional trades. We provide resources and support for women who are looking to enter these fields, and would want to raise awareness of the opportunities that are available to women in these industries.

At Sarina Russo Apprenticeships we believe that the success of women in non-traditional trades is a testament of determination, resilience, and skill. Despite facing significant obstacles, women are proving that they have what it takes to succeed in any industry. As more and more women enter non-traditional trades, we can expect to see even greater diversity and innovation in these fields.
