The YWCA Halifax’s Shift Change project is working with private sector employers to address barriers to women having careers in the trades in NS. It is a three-year project funded by the Department for Women and Gender Equality.
Based on the belief that both men and women but have a role to play in gender equality we are currently conducting focus groups with men in industries that employ trades people. Our approach is collaborative and we are working with a broad range of stakeholders including large and small employers, government, educational institutions and other non-profits.
The YWCA Halifax is a non-profit dedicated to improving the lives of women, girls and their families. We have been promoting women’s leadership for more than 140 years. You can learn more here.
