Can a woman be an electrician?

This is a question I hear all the time. I want to make this loud and clear; YES! The electrical trade is hurting for skilled labor across the sexes. With less than 4% of field construction workers being women, companies are looking to hire you to help bring diversity and unique perspectives to the job site.

If you are nervous about the gender gap in the industry, there are many resources here to help. I won’t lie, the construction culture can often be a bit blunt, and shit talking and crude humor is a natural part of that. That doesn’t mean that sexism and harassment is though, and every company I’ve ever worked for has zero tolerance of it.
