Here’s a report from Haley, a local union 1503 member who attended the 2019 Tradeswomen Build Nations conference.
“I had a great time attending the Tradeswomen Build Nations conference. This was my first time going to one of these events and I was blown away by the energy, diversity, and sheer volume of attendees (over 2,700). I was able to get into some really great workshops, including one focused on being an ally to trans and gender diverse people in the building trades which was amazing. I didn’t really know what to expect from the parade but that was a really cool experience as well. I also really enjoyed visiting the Carpenters hall/training center in St. Paul. I must say that the best part for me was the camaraderie and bonding with my 1503 siblings and those from other regions. I’m already looking forward to the next one!”
