Women’s Health Grampians, Apprenticeship Support Australia and Hope Assistance Local Tradies were excited to launch the Celebrating Women in Trades photography project on 4th April 2023.
The project aims to celebrate the achievements of women in trades, to provide strong role models of women working in male-dominated industries, and to support and inspire other women to begin their own trades career. Twelve tradeswomen from around the Central Highlands region were selected to feature in this project. They were photographed by Mitch Nivalis at MDP Photography and Video at their places of work, and interviewed about their experiences as a woman in a non-traditional trade. The launch event featured the powerful images and stories captured throughout the project.
We are honoured to share the stories of these trailblazing women, and to celebrate their remarkable achievements, as they pave the way for the next generation of tradies. The photos and stories can be viewed HERE.
