Women Shifting Gears is a unique program designed to empower women and develop their skills to enter the transportation industry.
Phase one is nine weeks of pre-employment training at the Saskatoon YWCA. Within this phase, trainees will cover key components within the industry, such as safety, health and wellness, and employability skills.
In the second phase, trainees will be matched up to an employer by the Saskatchewan Trucking Association for a three-week work placement.
The Women Shifting Gears program would not be possible without our partners, the Saskatchewan Trucking Association and the Government of Saskatchewan.
