‘Lean In Circles For Union Tradeswomen:’ Unique Event That Partners With The North America’s Building Trades Unions Provides Tradeswomen ‘With Skills To Advocate For Themselves’ In The Workplace

(ST. LOUIS, MISSOURI) – On November 6th, a new program created to support and empower women in the Building Trades - called Lean In Circles for Union Tradeswomen - will have a St. Louis kick-off event at Teamsters Joint Council Local 682 in St. Louis.

North America’s Building Trades Unions (NABTU) and Build Together are partnering with LeanIn.Org on this program to support and empower women in the Trades.

The program will connect Tradeswomen from various Trades to help them learn new skills and to advocate for themselves at work.

Lean In Circles are small groups of women who meet regularly to support each other and learn new skills together.

A Lean In Circle is also a safe space to connect with other Tradeswomen, speak openly about the challenges they are facing, and build skills and confidence to navigate challenges at work.

Speakers scheduled to address Tradeswomen at the St. Louis event include: National AFL-CIO Secretary-Treasurer Liz Shuler; NABTU Secretary-Treasurer Brent Booker; Rachel Thomas, CEO and Co-Founder of LeanIn.Org; Gina Walsh, President of the Missouri State Building & Construction Trades Council; John Stiffler, President of the St. Louis Building & Construction Trades Council; Vicki O’Leary, Chair of the NABTU Tradeswomen’s Committee; and Judaline Cassidy, a Plumber and Founder of Lean In Women in Trades and Tools & Tiaras.
