Women in Trades

Building an Inclusive Workforce

We’re dedicated to promoting workplace diversity and are committed to increasing workforce participation for women across the various industries we work in. 

We offer a range of programs designed to support women into traditionally male-dominated trade career pathways by creating new opportunities in both established and emerging sectors. This includes introducing pre-school leavers to trade careers and pre-apprenticeship programs; to advice and mentoring for mid-career women to transition into new careers in trades.

Some of the great programs we offer are:

Women in Trades Pre-Apprenticeship is a multi-Industry project supported by the Victorian Department of Education and Training – Apprenticeships Victoria that aims to provide female participants with the opportunity to have a hands-on trial of a range of vocational trade occupations over 6 to12 weeks. AGA delivers the Women in Trades initiative on behalf of the Apprentice Employment Network (AEN) in Victoria.

Connecting Women to Trades provides culturally & linguistically diverse women across Sydney with access to crucial career advice and pre-employment support, to support them develop confidence, independence and employability skills to start a career in trades. This program is delivered by Mas National.

Women in Trades Mentoring Program provides access to trades industry support, networking events, podcasts and webinars, monthly check-ins, and our mentor platform. This program is delivered by Mas Nataional helps women thrive in their trade career.
