Bay Area Resource for Women in the Trades

The California Bay Area seems to be  hopping with organizations that support women working in trades, from the Rosie the Riveter Memorial Park in Richmond to Oakland’s The Crucible where women can learn to weld.

Oakland is also home to Tradeswomen, Inc., “California’s first organization for women in the trades, was founded in 1979 as a grass- roots support organization. We build community among the growing numbers of women in blue collar, skilled craft jobs.”
