Program Overview: Current and future workplace challenges ask a lot from leaders and supervisors. Male supervisors in skilled trades identified the need to learn how to create inclusive work environments, suitable for both women, men and gender non-binary people. This course has been created and designed based on feedback and needs expressed by tradespeople.

Who Should Attend: Male supervisors and leaders who want to strengthen their leadership skills for effective communication and networking both inside and outside their organization.  As well for leaders who want to influence the workplace culture in a positive way.

Learn, Practice and Apply:

  • How to create a workforce that supports and includes women and the male leaders working with them.
  • How to communicate and interact with women and those different from ourselves; what to say, what not to say, how to respond.
  • What the workforce will look like over the next 10 years and how you can fit into what is happening.
  • What role male supervisors can play in supporting teams on the worksite.
  • How to deal with conflict when things come up.

Action Based Learning:

  • Learn through conversation and interactive sessions with other supervisors about real life examples, strategies and tactics.
  • Work with your own understanding and approach around gender, power and conflict.
  • Engage in action planning and make a commitment to creating an inclusive workplace.

This course has been designed and created through a partnership between YWCA Shift Change and the Nova Scotia Community College with input from skilled trades employees, partners and employers.
