This is an exciting time for Women Building Futures (WBF) as we continue to move forward our vision of "being valued for empowering women to succeed in non-traditional careers, inspiring positive economic change for women and forever transforming the face of industry in Canada." We are proud of our programs and services today that continue to make it possible for women to successfully enter careers in the construction trades. In 2014, we continued to ready the organization to graduate even more women, into more trades, and into more geographies. We are working hard to deliver more qualified workers into the Alberta and Canadian labour force. Our goal is to significantly increase the number of women entering and completing a construction-related apprenticeship. We believe that more employers will meet their trades workforce needs with our graduates. This was certainly the case in 2014 with more new employers hiring WBF grads and more employers overall hiring WBF grads than in previous years. We thank our partners from industry, government, LIFT Philanthropy Partners, and our funding agencies, as well as our instructors, staff and our Board of Directors for making this possible. MESSAGE FROM THE BOARD CHAIR AND CEO JudyLynn Archer President and CEO Sharon Bell Chair, Board of Directors OUR GOAL IS TO SIGNIFICANTLY INCREASE THE NUMBER OF WOMEN ENTERING AND COMPLETING A CONSTRUCTION-RELATED APPRENTICESHIP. 128 % The average increase in income for our Journeywoman Start graduates. 90 % Graduates hired within six months. 248 Total number of employers hiring our graduates.
