Stuff we do... 

Virtual Monthly Meetings

General meetings are held on the 3rd Thursdays/month. Open discussion, networking, etc.

Board Meetings  are held on the 2nd Thursday of the month:  Plan events, vote on funding and and help decide the path of our 40-year-old organization over a quick, light meal. We welcome members to join in and move up to leadership positions.  

Two major, annual events: 

Trades Fair - Held in Spring, celebrating over 4 decades!  More info here

  • Attend as a participant--it’s FREE! Stroll past hands-on exhibits demonstrating the
 trades careers at dozens of unions, corporations and public agencies.

  • Attend as an exhibitor; the fee covers either an indoor space or an outside area 
for trucks and equipment. 

Dream Big Dinner - held in November since 2007 -  More info here

  • Our gala event, the Dream Big Dinner is designed to honor past, current and future
 trades women. Celebrate with friends and colleagues at a lovely buffet dinner in a great venue.


We also partner with LIHI in the Women4Women Tiny House Program for homeless women.


Washington Women in Trades work matters, not just to the individual women, but to an entire community.
