Thanks to all who participated!

The goal of our awards program is to honor our sisters and brothers who have made (and are on their way to making) a piece of history in non traditional trades careers.

About our mission of inclusivity:

  • Awardees/nominees include a mix of people from various trades, organizations and agencies. 
  • Awardees/nominees include apprentices, journey level and retired people.
  • Awardees/nominees include a mix of races, genders and sexual identities.
