Women and Green Jobs Training
Survey: Women and Green Jobs Training
After a slowdown, green jobs and investments in energy efficiency are back on the table. By ‘green’ we mean any work related to energy efficiency, weatherization, alternative energy sources such as wind and solar, public transportation, pollution control, environmentally aware construction, recycling and safe removal of hazardous materials.
With this survey we are hoping to gather information about two aspects of your experience in the last few years: green jobs training specifically; and getting jobs and working in the trades more generally in the last few years. We are planning to use this information to inform national and statewide debates about policies targeted at giving women fair and equal access to quality jobs in the construction trades. The survey is supported by a grant from the Rockefeller Foundation.
The survey should take no longer than 15 minutes to complete.
All responses will be anonymous and will be treated in strictest confidence.
If you are interested to talk to us in greater depth about your experience and views, we would love to hear from you. You can leave your contact details at the end of the survey, or contact us directly via e-mail at Hegewisch@iwpr.org
Thank you for your time!
