Our 2020 Sponsors

 

Tradeswomen Australia was established to encourage, recruit and retain women in skilled trade roles that are male-dominated. We support industries to capitalise on previously untapped workers through the engagement of all stakeholders and by leading large scale culture change projects. By recognising the need for change in social attitudes we support businesses to take the lead and remove the barriers for women who wish to enter their trade.
