CAWIC Calls on Construction Industry to Promote Women’s Advancement
CAWIC has officially launched its Level Best Women’s Advancement Project. CAWIC is calling on industry employers, unions and educational partners to collaborate with CAWIC to address the shortage of skilled trades in Canada by promoting the entry and advancement of women into leadership roles within the Canadian construction industry.
CAWIC has been awarded a grant from the Government of Canada for $249,900 through Status of Women Canada to fund its three-year project for research and development an action plan, with direct collaboration from industry employers and female participants, with the objective to open more doors for women’s entry, retention and advancement into leadership roles within the Canadian construction industry.
CAWIC is actively seeking employer partners who share its vision to promote change and break down barriers for women in the industry, to create an action plan that makes economic sense, is realistic and attainable. Industry employers with operations in Alberta, Ontario and Newfoundland/Labrador have the opportunity to get directly involved in this important initiative.
