In collaboration with CCNB, New Boots: Progressing Women in Trades will be hosting their first ever Try-A-Trade event on March 8th at CCNB Dieppe from 11am-2pm. The event is open to the public and lunch will be provided.
Try-A-Trade events promote trades to the public, however this unique event will be focused on women and girls.
New Boots: Progressing Women in Trades was launched by the provincial government in an effort to advance women’s equality in New Brunswick’s economy. According to the Government of New Brunswick website, priority areas of the program include the following:
a provincial resource hub for women in skilled trades;
engaging partnerships with like organizations to reach young girls, such as the New Brunswick Teen Apprentice Program; and
The Joint Economic Development Initiative (JEDI) is extending an invite to Indigenous women interested in attending the Try-a-Trade event.
