The CWB Welding Foundation is conducting an initiative called “Women of Steel: Forging Forward.” The national effort is intended to provide information and training for women interested in welding and welding-related careers. More information is available at <https://www.cwbweldingfoundation.org/programs/women-steel>. The program will run until August.
“The ‘Women of Steel: Forging Forward’ program aims to increase the number of women in welding and joining, fabrication and other skilled trades,” said Susan Crowley, executive director of the foundation. “It will provide welding training and support for women with sustainable career options while increasing their economic security. Women in the program will benefit from wrap around supports such as childcare, transportation, mental health, wellness supports, cultural competencies, employment preparation and counseling sessions.”
