OTI’s membership driven, TOOLS program fosters leadership and activism skills for tradeswomen and empowers them to advocate for quality, safe, and equitable workplaces and communities.
The Tradeswomen Leadership Institute is an annual event put on by Oregon Tradeswomen, Inc. in collaboration with the Labor Education Research Center at the University of Oregon to facilitate leadership development, advocacy skills, and unity among all women (union, open shop, self-employed and otherwise) working in the building, construction, mechanical and utility trades.
Participants of the Tradeswomen Leadership Institute learn how to be more effective leaders in their workplaces, unions, companies and communities while building relationships with and gaining vital support from a community of women who share similar experiences working in the trades. Participants can look forward to more in-depth workshops, more networking opportunities and more time to discuss the issues that are important to you!
