SMART Women

SMART, the International Association of Sheet Metal, Air, Rail and Transportation Workers, is one of North America’s most dynamic and diverse unions with 208,000 members. Every day, thousands of women play a critical role in making SMART one of the leading Unions in North America. The SMART Womens' Committee supports female members by providing assistance in obtaining training and leadership skills; by  advocating on behalf of women in the trade and by mentoring new and potential members.

In our fifth episode of Talking SMART, we hear from members of the SMART Women's Committee.

In our fifth episode of Talking SMART, we hear from members of the SMART Women's Committee. While at the Partners in Progress conference in Las Vegas in February, we had a chance to sit down and talk with four SMART sisters who have taken the lead in breaking new ground for women in the building trades. They discussed how they got into the industry, growing diversity in construction and opportunities for women in the sheet metal trade. We hear from two of them in this episode, and two more in our next episode.
