She Works

This collection of best practices provides guides to recruitment and retention of tradeswomen in response to the general increase in shortage of skilled trades people. These best practices include pre-trades training programs, interviewing, workplace respect, communication styles and She Works training for supervisors or HR staff. The She Works training is provided by Women Building Futures and there are other references and resources available in this document. This best practice was prepared by the Women in Construction sub-committee requested by the Workforce Development committee in 2012.

The Construction Owners Association of Alberta recognizes that COAA’s office in Edmonton is located within Treaty 6 Territory and within the Métis homelands and Métis Nation of Alberta Region 4. We further acknowledge that what we call Alberta is the traditional and ancestral territory of many peoples, presently subject to Treaties 6, 7, and 8. Namely: the Blackfoot Confederacy – Kainai, Piikani, and Siksika – the Cree, Dene, Saulteaux, Nakota Sioux, Stoney Nakoda, and the Tsuu T’ina Nation and the Métis People of Alberta. We acknowledge the many First Nations, Métis and Inuit who have lived in and cared for these lands for generations and we are grateful for the traditional Knowledge Keepers and Elders who are still with us today and those who have gone before us. We make this acknowledgement as an act of reconciliation and gratitude to those whose territory we reside on or are visiting.
