Oregon Tradeswomen, Inc., (OTI) is dedicated to promoting success for women in the trades through education, leadership and mentorship. Founded in 1989 as a small support group led by four tradeswomen (an elevator constructor, two carpenters and an operating engineer), OTI was reorganized as Oregon Tradeswomen, Inc., a 501 (c)(3) non-profit, in 1999. OTI was founded on the principles that women deserve and can attain economic self-sufficiency through pursuing careers in the building, mechanical, electrical, and utility trades while helping and encouraging the trades industry build up a diverse workforce.
Today the organization is comprised of nearly 400 members, three programs, an annual trades career fair for women and girls, and the support of trades industry employers. Please see the Programs page for more details about OTI’s programs.
Oregon Tradeswomen, Inc.
