Event Agenda    Bridge-Building Activity


*The bridge-building activity is a fun, voluntary activity that conference participants can try! This hands-on session will give participants the opportunity to learn about skilled trades and technologies through a real-life example. Please read the guidelines to ensure you have all the required materials on the day of the conference. This activity is green and enviornmentally-friendly, as all materials can be recycled! Make sure you have the bridge build instructions with you during the event. You can work at your own pace and/or reference the event recording afterwards!

Skills Ontario: Women in Skilled Trades and Technologies Conference Live Follow-Up Q&A

Due to overwhelming enthusiasm and participation during the live Q&A portion of our conference, Skills Ontario held a live follow-up Q&A session with our speakers to allow participants to ask our amazing panelists and mentors more questions. The questions that couldn’t be answered during the conference due to time constraints were addressed, and Skills Ontario also provided an opportunity for new questions to be asked live through this Q&A session.

The live Q&A session was on Tuesday, June 16. Watch the recording below!
