“The City of Chicago has projected $20-$40 billion in construction spending over the next decade. This boom will provide a unique opportunity to build and support a skilled workforce that is inclusive and diverse. Chicago Women In Trades is committed to building our capacity to translate this moment of opportunity into real progress for women in the construction trades and other nontraditional occupations.” –
