VWW Social Hour
Vermont Works for Women (VWW) has launched a monthly social hour for women and gender non-conforming individuals from around the state to come together and discuss what it’s like to be working in Vermont right now.
The goal of this event is for women and gender non-conforming individuals to connect with each other, to find solidarity, and to share ideas and resources. Now in the 11th month of the pandemic, women are leaving the workforce at a rate 4x greater than men, so VWW is creating a safe place to share experiences and find support while having some fun!
Join VWW on Thursday, April 15 from 6 - 7:00 pm for a virtual Tradeswomen Social Hour: The Sky’s the Limit (or is it)?. Are you working in the trades, or would you like to be? Do you feel safe at work, wherever that is? Do you feel supported? What do good employers do to keep harassment and even violence out of the job? Join us for an informal conversation about the day-to-day experiences of women and gender non-conforming folks working in the trades. Please register in advance by emailing Program Manager Missy Mackin at firstname.lastname@example.org for the Zoom link.
Each month will focus on a different topic. Future topics might include negotiating your wage, finding a job during a pandemic, childcare, what employers are getting right, and more.
Virtual Job Shadows
Vermont Works for Women is hosting a series of virtual job shadows this winter. Companies and employers from a variety of trades will lead one-hour, live tours of their worksites. Participating in a virtual job shadow is a great way to learn about specific industries and speak directly with trades professionals. You will have the opportunity to ask questions about the job or company, view ongoing projects, and make connections in the industry.
On Friday, April 9th at 8:30am, join us for another virtual job shadow and conversation with BreadLoaf Corporation. This event will be organized in collaboration with the Vermont Talent Pipeline, and their Exploring Careers in Construction series. For more information and to join the event, please email Mary Anne Sheehan, at Maryanne@vtroundtable.org.
