The Dubuque Area Labor-Management Council has created an activity book showcasing women working in non-traditional careers. The development and printing of the book was paid for by a grant from the Dubuque Racing Association. "Women at Work" features four Dubuque women that work in non-traditional careers including a welder, plumber, CNC operator and engineer.
The Dubuque Area Labor Management Council has established a "Women in Non-traditional Careers" (WINC) committee with a focus on designing and delivering educational programs for women and girls aimed at increasing their knowledge of career opportunities in the skilled trades, technology, operations and manufacturing occupations.
The idea for creating an activity book came after the Council tried to purchase a book showcasing women in non-traditional careers and could not find one on the market. "So, we decided to create our own", according to DALMC Program Specialist, Megan Starr, "By showcasing actual women working in the Dubuque area we hope to demonstrate that it is not only acceptable but also exciting, challenging and rewarding to take on non-traditional roles in the workplace. We plan to work closely with the Dubuque Community Schools, local Girl Scout troops and 4-H clubs to implement this educational program".
Women featured in the book will be at River Lights Book Store to sign copies and answer questions.
