I’ve recieved my OSHA 10 and 30 hr certificate and am going to school to get my AD in environmental safety I would just really appreciate if I knew women or a woman in the field that wouldn’t mind me shadowing her. it would look excellent on my resume ☹️

That is the field that I grown up in. I am not longer in that field because I just got burned out in it. But it is a good field to be in. About 2 times a year i might get a job to do some painting. But that is about it now days.

Excellent Question Chloe Guevara ! The construction industry is still in need of a more diverse population among it's workforce! The number of women entering the construction industry has increased over the last decade but it's still not enough to make a strong enough impact in the workforce.

The mentoring options are limited as a result but there's still opportunities for you to connect with talented, experience, and professional working women in the Trades.

Connect with other professionals via local and national Working Women Associations and Networking groups. Organizations like the National Association of Women in Construction and the Women Contractors Association are great resources where you can meet, discuss, and identify local networking resources that can help you further develop you career.

Men make Great Mentors too! Seeking tutorship from a kindred spirit has it's value but be careful not to limit yourself. Training to gain experience for career development is the main goal.

The quicker and further along the career growth path you can progress within your profession the better prepared you will be to offer guidance and mentorship to the new generation of Women Construction workers that follow.

Best of Luck throughout all your career endeavors Chloe Guevara ! Thanks for raising such and important question within this community :-)
