Honoring Women in the Building Trades at 2022 Conferences

We are proud to celebrate the many hardworking women in our union, our state, and across the country. Please visit the links below to learn more about these important 2022 conferences.

Women Build Boston
The first Women Build Boston Conference was held on October 8, 2022. From breakout sessions to networking opportunities, the event brought Boston’s community together to honor women in the trades and discuss opportunities to continue promoting inclusivity. Keynote speakers included Secretary of Labor Martin J. Walsh, and Maura Healey in her prior role as Attorney General. 

We were proud to have Gina Ciampa, Jodie Dalton, Tyiesha Thompson, Nicole Dalton, Tia Ferrie, Shannon Guest, Darche Hood, Tonia Lee, Kat Notini, Business Manager Jeff Saliba, President Wayne Ortiz, and Training Coordinator Rick Rothwell in attendance.
