Welcome to Tradeswomen Australia

Our not-for-profit organisation brings Industry and Tradespeople together to create awareness and support for Women working in male-dominated trade industries.


Women currently represent only 2% of the Australian trades workforce. Our goal is to increase female participation to ensure true diversity, inclusiveness and equity are achieved.

The Need for Gender Diversity in Trades

Australia is experiencing skill shortages in 62 key trade areas*. With the right support from key support networks and industry, these positions could be filled by skilled, strong, capable Tradeswomen. 

Channel Nine’s “A Current Affair” recently featured Tradeswomen Australia and the need to boost Tradeswomen numbers in skill shortage areas.
