Getting it done: Utilising women’s skills in the workforce

Between 2013 and 2015 the number of women working in trades in Canterbury more than doubled, from 4,100 in December 2013 to 8,300 in December 2015.
 
This is the result of the Ministry for Women’s work with its Canterbury partners to encourage women to train in high growth industries and to encourage employers to hire more women to fill their skills shortages, particularly in construction and trades.
