Washington D.C. had better brace itself, because the powerhouse women of Local 10 were in town for the 2023 Tradeswomen Build Nations conference! This wasn’t just any gathering; it was a celebration of resilience, skill, and sisterhood – and our Local 10 sisters were right at the heart of it.
From the opening keynote that resonated with every hammer blow and welding arc, to the workshops overflowing with knowledge and camaraderie, our sisters soaked it all in. They honed their skills in advanced carpentry, shared best practices in safety protocols, and even got a sneak peek at the cutting-edge tech transforming the trades industry.
But beyond the technical, this conference was about building connections. Our sisters forged friendships with tradeswomen from across the country, swapping stories about late nights on the job, triumphs over challenges, and the shared dream of building a more equitable future for women in the trades.
The impact of this conference on our Local 10 sisters is undeniable. They’ve returned with a renewed sense of purpose, a toolbox overflowing with new skills and ideas, and a heart full of inspiration from their fellow sisters-in-arms. They’re eager to share their learnings with the rest of the Local, mentor the next generation of tradeswomen, and continue to break down barriers in the industry.
