Getting more women involved in trades and construction has been a dream in the industry for a long time. The situation may be slowly improving, but a combination of factors continues to create barriers to women who might be interested in trades and construction. In this episode, Jay Koblun, digital editor of Rock to Road, spoke with Karen Thompson, president of Haver & Boecker Niagara, based in St. Catharines, Ont., and Kristen Randall, marketing manager of Haver & Boecker Niagara, on their experiences in the industry.
