The construction industry invests time and money to train its workforce through apprenticeship, on-the-job training, and journeymen upgrades. Ensuring that these investments result in quality workers who remain in the industry is critical. However, retention in our industry remains a challenge, and in particular for women and minorities who often face barriers on the jobsite and in their careers.
If you are an apprenticeship program, pre-apprenticeship training provider, employer, or other workforce practitioner, this webinar is for you. Join us to learn about retention and supportive service models to increase retention of women in construction. A panel of industry experts and peers will provide you with best practices and resources to add to your toolkit! You will learn how to ensure workers successfully move from pre-apprenticeship to Registered Apprenticeship and employment during this hour long free webinar. Q & A session will follow the presentations.
