Lean In Circles
for Union Tradeswomen

Connecting and empowering women in the trades.

About the partnership

Lean In.Org, North America Building Trades Union (NABTU), and Build Together are excited to launch a new program to connect and empower women in the trades. There is power in women coming together—and we’re looking forward to starting this journey with you!

About the pilot program

Starting in November 2019, we will be piloting the program in St. Louis, in partnership with Missouri Building and Trades Council and the St. Louis Building Trades, and in Canada, in partnership with Build Together.

Learn more at our kick-off event in St. Louis on November 6th.

About Circles

Lean In Circles are small groups of women who meet regularly to support each other and learn new skills together. Your Circle is a safe space to connect with other tradeswomen, speak openly about the challenges you’re facing, and build skills and confidence to navigate bias at work.

  • Monthly meetings
    You’ll join a Circle with 8 to 12 other tradeswomen and meet once a month for six months.

  • Custom materials
    Each meeting features content and tools created specifically for women in the trades.

  • Wider network
    You’ll be invited to our private Facebook group for tradeswomen participating in the program.
