Across the province, Skills Ontario has been gathering high school girls in different cities to explore careers in the skilled trades and technologies. These events provide participants the opportunity to meet, network, and enjoy a meal with female mentors who have already chosen a career path in the skilled trade and technology sector.
Throughout the day, students network with women who have a career focus in various trades – mining, hairstyling, engineering, heavy machinery and more.
In Thunder Bay, DST’s Christine Sebesta attended the event hosted by the Carpenters Union 1669. Christine is an CAD Technologist with a background in civil engineering technology and was happy to discuss her career path and provide mentorship to the high school students.
