The North American Tradeswomen are sending a delegation to London in June, where they will be visiting construction sites and training centres, and supporting plans for a Women’s Building on the site of the former Holloway Prison. I’ll be giving an online talk about the history of Holloway on June 11th, 4pm.
Women make up less than 2 percent of trades workers in the UK, and the 2022 Tradeswomen Building Bridges Delegation will be discussing regional networks and promoting solidarity among women working in construction. Community Plans for Holloway will be co hosting a careers fair focussing on opportunities in green construction on the prison site and a community picnic on June 12th. Read more here and here.
