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

Doing It Right (2021)


Doing It Right (2021)

Doing it Right (2021) a long-term, qualitative research project that will continue to document experiences of Yukon women in trades and technology. This  report aims to identify and create system-wide strategies to address the issues they face in northern workplaces.

The program includes both Indigenous and non-Indigenous women and includes women who identify as LGBTQ2S+. Making it Work, a report by Yukon Women in Trades and Technology, identified that many Yukon women face issues such as harassment, systemic barriers, and a lack of supports. This initiative will bring a greater understanding of these ongoing issues and develop initiatives for change.

This research is made possible through the support of the Future Skills Centre.  

Take a look at our project and other Shock-Proofing the Future of Work Projects.
