“Presently, women represent less than 10 percent of workers in the Building Trades,” said Cassidy. “It is through our sponsors like LIXIL, that Tools & Tiaras can fulfill its vision to expose as many young women as possible to trade professions.”
Cassidy continued, “I want them to know that professions like mine are not only normal but accepted and critically needed in the future as plumbers are vital to the health and prosperity of our communities.”
