Some of you may have come across a news story this past week with regards to comments made during a construction podcast out of Toronto.  For the last 7 years, the MWC Board and numerous volunteers have worked tirelessly to try to help our industry make changes so that the behavior and situations suggested in the podcast disappear completely. We have seen a lot of positive change in Manitoba, but still have much to do so that women are fully and 100% accepted in any role that they choose to take on, in the construction industry. Everyone deserves a safe and secure workplace, be it in an office or on the job site.  There should be zero tolerance for any kind of sexual harassment or sexism in the construction industry. Manitoba Building Trades has posted a letter at https://mbtrades.ca/a-message-to-manitobas-tradeswomen that helps articulate our thoughts as well! MWC will continue to work with the industry for change and will be there for the support and network that is essential for a woman in construction.  Never hesitate to reach out and let us know what we can do to help!
