Our Experiential Learning team has been working with our partners at the Limestone District School Board to secure spaces for their upcoming Women in Trades Day held at St. Lawrence College on October 21st. This initiative dovetails nicely with the Ministry's focus on promoting all pathways with particular focus on women moving toward careers in the skilled trades. The day starts with a keynote speaker, please see the link below and then allows students to meet and interact with a variety of women that are following their pathway dream while living the "Skilled Life". If you have female students enrolled in your construction course now or any other technology course they might benefit greatly from this very empowering day.
We have reserved 15 spaces for your students and will follow up with busing, permission forms and release time details shortly. We really just need to report numbers to our Limestone partners to assist with logistical planning.
