Women in Manufacturing Skilled Trades Symposium

February 21, 2025 from 9:00 am to 3:30 pm PST

The Women in Manufacturing Skilled Trades Symposium is presented by Bay Area Community Colleges (BACC) and the Association of Manufacturers Bay Area (AMBayArea). The annual event focuses on best practices for recruiting women into important skilled trades careers (machining, welding, industrial maintenance, electronics, etc.). 

Join fellow manufacturers and educators to discuss how to recruit more women into the manufacturing skilled trades and learn best practices from speakers and panelists. This will be the beginning of a regional conversation to determine how we can improve the recruitment of women into these careers. The following are encouraged to attend:

  • Manufacturers (HR, technical hiring managers, and those who create company strategy for outreach and hiring)
  • Educators in community colleges & K-12 schools who develop programs, recruit students or work with students to advise on careers
  • Workforce development professionals working with clients to find new careers

 

This event will be held at a Bay Area community college. Location TBD.

Save the date and watch for more details in early 2025.
