Welding Department: Women at work !

Welding is a great example of a career that has been predominantly for men. But nowadays the way of thinking and the way of doing things is changing. New thoughts and new ways of working can change this situation...

Background

If women and men are equally adept at learning to weld, why are there more male welders than female welders?
Welding is a profession in which men are predominant. A lot of this is because many people think this is not a profession for women. But every day, new technologies and new processes emerge that allow for greater female participation. However, it appears that women's participation in this career is not happening at the same speed as technology is changing.

Challenge

What can our community do to bring more women into this important career?
