2024 Unlocking the Toolkit

Unlocking the Toolkit was back on April 18, and better than ever, as more than 90 girls from Grades 5 & 6 descended on WCA’s Construction Education Centre to try their hands at a variety of trades. Hosted by MWC, WCA and Women and Gender Equity Manitoba (WAGE-MB), the one-day event gave students the opportunity to explore careers in construction trades and meet women working in the industry.

The event garnered some media coverage – you can check out the Global News clip at the 12-minute mark here and the piece from CTV News at 21:10 here.

A HUGE thanks goes out to all of the volunteers, exhibitors and sponsors who help make this day possible! We would not be able to do this without your support and generosity.
