WRTP | BIG STEP President & CEO Lindsay Blumer was interviewed by the Milwaukee Business Journal after being selected as a 2023 Women of Influence Award winner by the publication. As WRTP | BIG STEP’s first female leader in a historically male-dominated field, Lindsay is uniquely equipped to advance gender equity in the trades through the nonprofit’s no-charge training, apprenticeships, and career support.

She notes that while women currently make up 3 – 5% of the current trades workforce, 20% of WRTP | BIG STEP’s clients are women, which leads her to believe a change is coming in the construction and manufacturing industries.
