Service + Solidarity Spotlight: Tradeswomen Lean In to Support Each Other


Working people across the United States have stepped up to help out our friends, neighbors and communities during these trying times. In our regular Service + Solidarity Spotlight series, we’ll showcase one of these stories every day. Here’s today’s story.

Following a successful Tradeswomen Build Nations conference earlier this month, North America's Building Trades Unions (NABTU), its affiliates and Lean In have joined together to launch a virtual, structured mentorship program made for tradeswomen, by tradeswomen. “It’s important that tradeswomen have a space to talk about their experiences and to help each other,” said Aurora Bihler, a member of the Ironworkers. “I wanted to be a part of this program so that women all over can have this support system in place with researched advice and solutions that are specific to our unique careers.”
