Tools & Tiaras Boston Scholarship Fund
Since the 70s, the number of women employed in the Mechanical, Industrial, Technical, Trades (MITT) have hovered around 3.4% without any real tangible progress.
Progress is attainable with calculated actions. One actionable solution, "PUT TOOLS IN THE HANDS OF GIRLS SOONER."
The founder of Tools & Tiaras Inc. is Judaline Cassidy. She has been successful working in construction for over twenty years as a Plumber in New York City. From the moment she started working with tools, as a Union Plumber, the unconfident, vulnerable and the feeling unworthiness of her place in this world went away. Now as a Tradeswoman she is Wonder Women, what she always wanted to be as a young girl.
The Chapter President of Tools & Tiaras Boston is Erin Joyce-Brady. It was a small mention of Tools & Tiaras Inc. that had a big impact on her. “I came across an article in a contractors’ magazine highlighting Tools & Tiaras’ Summer Camps. I was so inspired by their mission, and wanted the same for girls in our community. I also wanted to help support positive change in my industry. There was an email address at the bottom of the article, so I took a chance and reached out. The reply I received became something greater than I could have ever imagined and Tools & Tiaras Boston was born."
Shouldn't we teach our girls and boys that jobs don't have a gender? Being the exception might be ok for some people. but for T&T no. We want professions like plumbing to be normal and excepted for women and girls everywhere. The only way that we can support women and girls, is if we whole heartily
INVEST IN THEM!.
By making a donation to our scholarship fund, you can, and will make a meaningful difference. Your donations will help us cover the registration fees for our workshops and summer camps in carpentry, electrical, welding and plumbing offered to women and girls in the Greater Boston Area so that no girl is left behind especially due to economical factors.
Together we can move this number that seems unmovable in the last forty years.
This should be unacceptable since we keep telling girls they can be anything they want to be.
Well...... except maybe an Engineer, Plumber, Iron Worker or President. When you inspire a girl today, you're empowering the woman she will become.
Help us Expose, Inspire and Mentor future Tradeswomen with the arsenal they need to be successful in life. This can only be done with your donations and support.
