“The women of New Mexico are capable, strong and important members of our community. We need more of these strong women in our trades professions! Plumbing, electrical, carpentry, and transportation are just a few of the trades that need you, our mighty women. Join us on Friday, March 31, 2023 for our Second Annual NM Women in the Trades Summit (WITS) to explore career, internships and apprenticeship opportunities. Excellent speakers, a stellar panel of women in the trades, and an opportunity to ‘speed date’ with various women currently in trades professions, await you. Remember to keep your WITS about you as you join us for the Second Annual NM Women in the Trades Summit (WITS)!”- Representative Pamelya Herndon
