Empowered Women in Trades sets fundraising target for 2024

Following a successful fundraising campaign in 2023 that garnered over $19,000 for charity programs supporting women in various industries, Empowered Women in Trades has ambitiously set a target to raise $50,000 in 2024.

By Hacia Atherton, CEO, Empowered Women in Trades.

Empowered Women in Trades (EWIT) is revolutionising trade-based industries, including construction, by opening up opportunities for women and non-binary people to start meaningful careers and thrive. We champion diversity, breaking down barriers and proving that trades are defined by skill, not gender.

EWIT isn’t just an organisation – it’s a movement. We’re paving the way for a more inclusive future in trades through training, mentorship and strong industry partnerships. Every woman and non-binary person empowered is a stride towards industry transformation.

Our work continues beyond there. The funds raised through events, including our annual gala, go directly into charity programs, ensuring that we can continue to make a tangible difference in the lives of countless vulnerable women and non-binary people.

We thank our esteemed 2023 Gala sponsors, attendees, and awe-inspiring award winners. Your unwavering support and presence made the evening truly memorable. Together, we raised over $19,000, a testament to our collective commitment. These funds were instrumental in empowering vulnerable and at-risk women to embark on a transformative journey into skilled trades.
