The Celebrating Women in Trades Photography Project is a collaboration between Apprenticeship Support Australia, Women’s Health Grampians, and Hope Assistance Local Tradies (HALT). 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 women from around the Central Highlands region who work in a non-traditional trade were selected to feature in this project. We are honoured to present these remarkable images, captured by Mitch Nivalis of MDP Photography & Video, along with the stories from the women themselves.
Women who are considering a career in trades can contact Nicole Brudenall, Coordinator of Women in Non-traditional Trade at Apprenticeship Support Australia for a free career consultation.
