Save The Date • Project of The Year • Opens October 1st • 6 categories

Just wanted to say that Mark, Michael and Stuart from FMI and Trevor from PWC did an excellent job engaging the classroom in discussion each day, and had a great program format for teaching. The information they brought forward was extremely useful now as I'm sure it will be throughout my career. This was only my 2nd IMPACT course that I have attended, I would like to commend IMPACT on organizing these events for Ironworkers and contractors alike, IMPACT always put on an amazing program, and does a very good job at making these events comfortable and welcoming to attend. I plan to attend more IMPACT events as the information is always very useful and IMPACT does a great job of finding the right instructors for the occasion. I would like to thank everyone at IMPACT for the work they do to set these events up and providing the opportunity to attend these courses.

Regards,

Women Workers And The Future Of Manly Jobs

04/26/2017


Boomers are retiring in droves off many blue collar work sites, hanging up their gloves, their boots, their hardhats. A lot of millennials, we’re told, don’t want those jobs – muddy, heavy, hard. But there are still jobs to be filled – from ironworking to auto repair to truck driving. And those industries are turning to women. Rosie the Riveter was the factory icon of World War II. Now, some big American industries want her back. Up next On Point: hardhats, women, and the American workforce. -- Tom Ashbrook
