There are quite a few young women that have come through HIWT over the years, but never as many as we have seen most recently. Hobart Institute currently has 17 ladies that have chosen the welding field as a career. As a result, Hobart Institute is creating their first female welding group that will be meeting monthly. During those meeting times the ladies will hear from past female graduates that have taken careers in the field. They will also get to learn about different jobs in the field and what type of knowledge and skills it takes to do them. The best part is bonding with like-minded women that have the same goals.
If you are interested in learning more about this group, or are a woman in welding and would like to speak at a future meeting, please contact Janet Piechocki at Janet.Piechocki@welding.org
