The only national event for tradeswomen – WIT is fast drawing near! It is on 4th July at The Great Hall, London Met University.

The raffle at the end of the day is always a big part of the event, with truly fantastic prizes donated by supporters throughout the industry. We thought we’d give a wider range of companies the opportunity to support greater diversity and inclusion in construction and maintenance by supporting WIT this year by donating a raffle prize or/and attending as a paying guest.

WIT started as an event celebrating women plumbers and heating engineers in 2017 but has grown into an event for all tradeswomen especially women electricians, supported by sponsorship from industry businesses committed to encouraging greater diversity in the industry – including Stopcocks, Vaillant UK, Monument Tools, Williams Merchants, EFIXX TV, Aalberts/Pegler, Kohler/Mira, Stopcor Limited, Adey, LCL Awards, Mark Vitow, JTL Training, Swale Heating, Crowcon Ltd, Fergus, Checkatrade and Kensa Contracting.

WIT remains truly unique in the sector, bringing tradeswomen together from Cornwall to Scotland to celebrate their skills and tenacity. We discuss ways to increase numbers of women in all skilled trades and have a really great day. We’d like to give supporters who are interested in coming on board but want to know more, the opportunity to join us on the day by buying paying ticket (just £60) and coming along or to donate a raffle prize.

The very last part of the day, the raffle is always a highlight!

Besides our now famous, free lunch, the day includes Hattie Hasan MBE and another fantastic speaker from outside the industry who has also overcome biases and obstacles, this year; Atlantic Rower – and so much more Sally Kettle, roundtable discussions and delegates talking from the floor.
