Wynn Boston Harbor Co-Hosts Massachusetts Girls In Trade Career Fairs
Wynn Boston Harbor is a founding member of the Massachusetts Girls in Trades which was established to encourage females in high school to consider high-wage careers that are in demand in the construction trades.
“Wynn Boston Harbor wants to be a leader in promoting women to the many high-paying, high-skill jobs in the construction trades,” said Robert DeSalvio, President of Wynn Boston Harbor. “We will have 4,000 union construction workers on our project and we hope that many will be women beginning careers in construction.”
A second conference will be held in Western Massachusetts on April 13th at the William J. Dean Technical High School, 1045 Main Street, Holyoke, MA. Vocational students who are interested in attending should contact their teacher, principal or vocational director.
The Massachusetts Girls in Trade group was formed in late 2015 by Wynn Boston Harbor and Minuteman High School.
This year’s Massachusetts Girls In Trade Career Fairs follow a successful inaugural event held last year in Dorchester. The 2016 career fair attracted more than 400 people—including more than 300 students and teachers from vocational-technical programs at 18 high schools—who heard from successful tradeswomen, attending workshops to learn about joining the trades and met with representatives from unions, contractors and apprenticeship programs.
