As part of the M.O.R.E. Work program’s Women’s Initiatives, a new film is in process to help recruit and retain more Boilermaker women—and help Boilermaker men understand their sisters better.
The film aims to interview a variety of Boilermaker women throughout the United States and Canada to address a three-pronged goal:
- Show the diversity of the Boilermakers’ female members.
- Tell the story of the challenges Boilermaker women face on the job.
- Help Boilermaker brothers (and sisters) better understand how to advocate for Boilermaker women.
So far, Boilermakers have been interviewed at L-549 (Pittsburg, California) and L-92 (Los Angeles), and plans are to continue working with business managers to strategically coordinate interviews over the coming months, as time permits.
