Come join us for a fun-filled Women’s PPE Event and Holiday Meetup on November 23, where we’ll celebrate and connect while trying on PPE! The event is open for all women, non binary, trans women, trans men and allies. You do not have to be a BC Tradeswomen Society member to attend, but in case you want to join here is the link.
It is nearing the Holiday time of year and with our partners Motion and the BC Centre for Women in the Trades, we have organized an event around PPE for our Holiday Meetup at the Heritage Hall in Vancouver. There will be snacks, drinks and networking in a fun and supportive atmosphere. We will have a variety of raffle prizes to win as well.
There will be a variety of vendors providing for a chance for you to try on PPE that fits your body with the overall goal of encouraging companies to supply well-fitting women’s PPE as part of their safety purchasing, since women are often left on their own to acquire their PPE. Our event sponsor Motion is a distributor for all of these vendors and while the goal is to have your companies supply PPE, there may be an opportunity to purchase some of the PPE gear from Motion at the event. Vendors attending are Helga Wear, Forcefield by Latoplast Ltd., MSA Safety, Pilote & Filles and Watson Gloves.
Notes: First drink is on us but after that it will be a CASH only bar. Everyone attending will get ONE raffle ticket with a chance to buy more with all proceeds going to the BC Tradeswomen Society as a fundraiser.
