MassGaming awards grant to support an innovative recruitment and outreach strategy aimed at increasing diversity in the building trades

MGC is pleased to announce its support for a first-of –its-kind, statewide program that will implement a focused effort to increase the number of women in the building trades. Massachusetts is nationally recognized as a leader in the movement to employ women in the trades; however, female construction workers remain underrepresented in high wage jobs. As Massachusetts continues to experience a historic building boom with expanded gaming at the forefront, MGC has awarded more than $150,000 in grant funding to launch a new partnership that will carry out a comprehensive recruitment strategy to encourage more women to pursue a career in the building trades. In addition to the creation of a pipeline navigator, this initiative will include the development and implementation of a comprehensive communication campaign to increase awareness and support the program’s overarching goal of 20% tradeswomen by 2020.
