A New Way to See Us: Tradeswomen’s Stories

In the middle of a global pandemic, I met thoughtful, powerful, talented, adventurous women continuing to take chances on themselves in careers spanning a few years to decades-long.

I can’t wait for you to meet them all.

With A New Way to See Us: Tradeswomen’s Stories, Literature for All of Us undertook a project that brought us back together with alumni of the Technical Opportunities Program at Chicago Women in Trades (CWIT).

For this project, we invited guests to create a new anthology to reflect the people and times we live in today. Each story offers professional and personal wisdoms about working in the trades. Through interviews, poetry written over the course of our partnership with CWIT, artwork, and essays, we hope that this anthology offers a little bit of something for everyone. And, a special thank you to CWIT for this partnership!
