Connections2Careers announces the following sponsors of the Construction Career Awareness Fair:
Based out of Troy, Michigan and serving industries internationally, Superior Electric Great Lakes Company (SEGLC) is a designer, provider and installer of turnkey and cost-effective electrical solutions. SEGLC is powered by a competitive advantage of providing the best net project value and offering full transparency in our process.
The Michigan Regional Council of Carpenters and Millwrights represents 14,000 carpenters and millwrights across the state of Michigan. Their member carpenters help build diverse projects, large and small, residential and commercial. Union millwrights work with precision machinery, installing and maintaining everything from conveyor systems to turbines and generators. Their members work closely with contractor partners across the state.
Women In Skilled Trades (WIST) was co-founded by Tori Menold and Carol Cool, in the late fall of 2016. Both women were looking for a way to have a positive impact on their community, empower women, and help the industry that they have worked in for their entire careers. By combining their passion for helping women and their knowledge of the construction industry, Women In Skilled Trades was formed. WIST is working to develop programs and events to help educate and inform women about the exciting and fulfilling career opportunities in the construction skilled trades. By exposing more women to the exciting opportunities in the skilled trades, they are hoping to help fill that labor gap AND promote the lives of women in our community.
