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.

Current Research

From 2021-2023, we are leading a research-to-action project called Doing It Right. Funded by Future Skills Canada, this project will help YWITT identify and/or develop, pilot, and test/evaluate support initiatives for women and gender diverse tradespersons working in the Yukon’s skilled trades.
