Te Pūkenga plays an active role in encouraging more women to enter the trades. Some of the initiatives we have run include get-togethers for women from various trades to meet and connect with each other. Our female ambassadors regularly visit schools and speak at events to share their experiences.
Te Pūkenga also works with other ITOs and industry partners to promote careers for women in trades and to promote their success. Having the same goal means we can share our resources and energy to create outcomes that benefit the whole industry.
