Young Women’s Conference

The Young Women’s Conference is a one day event hosted in Thompson, The Pas, Brandon, Dauphin, and Winnipeg, which highlights skilled trades and technology occupations.

Young participants meet female mentors working in the trades or technology fields, participate in team-building and hands-on activities, and receive information on employment opportunities and career planning. This conference is intended to provide female role models to young women and to assist them in planning their future career.

The conference also provides guidance to advisors (or parents), that accompany the young women on career planning in a “break-out” session.

“I’ve always loved to take things apart to see how they work. With my education and Skills Manitoba experience, I now have a job where I get to design the kinds of things I used to take apart!”
