2017 Women in Trades Career Fair
Education, inspiration and opportunity for the future construction workforce, by the Oregon Tradeswomen Network.
Inspire the next generation of tradeswomen as a sponsor, workshop presenter or exhibitor. Connect with diverse job candidates, educate students about apprenticeships and career possibilities outside of college and debt, inform adult career seekers about opportunities in the industry and interact with the public to raise awareness about the work you do in the community.
Sponsorship includes the opportunity to present a workshop and host an exhibit table, plus many publicity benefits including logo placement on television commercials, TriMet transit advertising, online ad campaigns and media communications.
Exhibiting includes opportunity to connect with diverse job candidates and inform adult career seekers about opportunities available at your company.
Presenting a workshop offers a unique opportunity to inform students about skilled trades career opportunities.
