West Virginia Steps Up for Women Manufacturers

Thursday, February 15, 2018
 

An introductory course for women interested in careers in manufacturing, offered in Huntington W.VA for two years, has come to Bridgeport, W.VA. The Step Up for Women course, the result of a partnering effort involving the Robert C. Byrd and West Virginia Women Work, provides a path to manufacturing jobs as part of a 10-week course.

"We know that there's a need in the manufacturing industry for skilled workers, and women are underrepresented in the industry,” says Mike Friel, public information specialist, adding that only 29 percent of all manufacturing jobs in the U.S. are held by women. Friel says women who complete the course, which is free, often find a job or an apprenticeship by the time their course work is done.

“We have geared our program to benefit women who are low-income. Our program is for making women self-sufficient. That is our main goal,” says Lakiesha Hines, program coordinator.
