WIST has partnered with the Capital Area Housing Partnership (CAHP) and local trade unions to bring you an opportunity to learn more about high-wage, in-demand construction jobs. Professional tradeswomen will be there to answer your questions about these exciting careers and share their own stories with you.

Please join us at the Lansing Public Media Center on Saturday, January 18, 2020, anytime from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm for this WOMEN BUILD event.


Panel discussions will take place at 11:00 am and 1:00 pm.
