Using Research to Guide our Work

In order to better understand the context in which Yukon tradespeople – and women among them – work and study, YWITT conducts ongoing research projects with tradespeople and apprentices, employers, industry representatives, unions, instructors, administrators and NGOs who work with women in trades.

Doing It Right (2021-2023)

YWITT’s Doing It Right Project is our ongoing research-to-action project that mobilizes women and gender diverse tradespersons working in skilled trades to form a supportive community; develop and share strategies for peer and group support; and work together to move our collective ideas into action

Phase One:
Hiring Community Action Leaders

We’re looking for 4-5 enthusiastic individuals to join our Doing It Right team as Community Action Leaders! These are new positions, so we want to hear from people from a wide range of experiences.

For YWITT, a community action leader is someone who identifies as a woman, non-binary or gender non-conforming person who has personally trained and/or worked in the skilled trades or technology sector in the Yukon. Community action leaders bring their lived experience, unique perspectives, and community connections to this project, help steer its direction, and lead community organizing, as well as action-implementation activities.
