Mission

Chicago Women in Trades is a nonprofit organization committed to improving womens economic equity by increasing the number of women working in well-paid, skilled trade jobs traditionally held by men. The organization, established by tradeswomen, addresses the barriers that prohibit women and girls from entering and succeeding in male-dominated industries by creating opportunities and promoting equitable and female-friendly environments.

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

We are one of the few organizations across the country dedicated to opening up the trades to women and girls. CWITs programs include direct service that prepare women and girls in elementary and high school for traditionally male-dominated careers in the construction, manufacturing and transportation sectors of the economy as well as advocacy to promote equitable work conditions, like separate female sanitary facilities, and opportunities for women on worksites and in training programs across the country.
