The Northeast Center for Tradeswomen’s Equity (NCTE) is a newly formed non-profit organization working to increase access and opportunities for women and people of color to enter economically sustainable careers in the union building trades in Massachusetts. The principal partner groups in NCTE are long-established partners in increasing women’s access to good building trades union jobs: the Policy Group on Tradeswomen’s Issues (PGTI), Massachusetts AFL-CIO (MA AFL-CIO), the Building Pathways Building Trades Pre-Apprenticeship Program (BPI), the Building and Construction Trades of the Metropolitan District (MetroBTC), and the New England Regional Council of Carpenters (NERCC). The work of this collaborative effort is available at

Women are underrepresented in the high wage building trades careers.  Recently the Boston Globe magazine published a story titled “Why women are finally starting to get construction jobs in Mass” that highlighted the underrepresentation of women within the construction trades and detailed the ongoing efforts to address that challenge.  These points are significant because Massachusetts has one of the highest concentrations of poor working women, with nearly half of the state’s low-income households headed by single mothers struggling in low-wage jobs according to a 2015 study by the Crittenden Women’s Union.
