A fantastic article on the Build Together MB committee. Written by Aarti Sharma, Business Agent for LIUNA local 1258.

“In any significant change initiative, systems require pioneers. These pioneers display extraordinary courage and selfless willingness to improve the lives of many others. They do not accept their own challenges as the rights of passage for others who follow. Instead, they carry an unyielding resolve to help others enjoy the benefits of their efforts without experiencing the hardship.

The women of BTMB are true pioneers. The full measure of their efforts will benefit generations of women who pursue a career in the skilled trades. As an industry, we look forward to the changing demographic landscape in construction. The industry will be better for it.”
