We thank Victoria Navarro, Advocate Aurora Health’s Regional Director of Planning, Design, and Construction, and Jessica Benson of Mortenson for helping us get the word out on the opportunities that await women in the construction industry and how WRTP/BIG STEP can support you on your journey. These women are fierce and fun, and it was a joy to have their energy as part of our campaign to connect more families to middle-class lives through occupations in the skilled trades.

WRTP/BIG STEP is thrilled to welcome Melissa Gaglione, who serves as President of Safety4her Inc., as our final celebrity bartender for our Cheers to Careers Event 🍸 When we heard she wanted to join us, we had to make a spot for her! Melissa created Safety4her, a high-visibility line of clothing for women working in the trades, from her struggle to find comfortable safety clothing that fit properly. In her day-to-day life, Melissa works as an Operations Manager within her fiancée’s towing company, and she is a member of the Women of Towing and Recovery Association and the Women In Trucking Association.

Thanks to Safety4her (safety4her.com) for their generous support of our event and mission.

WRTP | BIG STEP is a 501(c)3 nonprofit workforce intermediary dedicated to connecting people to family-sustaining jobs.

Our mission is to enhance the ability of public and private sector organizations to recruit, develop, and retain a more diverse, qualified workforce in construction, manufacturing and emerging sectors of the regional economy.

WRTP was initially created to renew our traditional industrial base in the Milwaukee area during the 1990s. The recovery of manufacturing, retirement of an aging workforce, and diversification of the regional economy created a growing skills shortage by the end of the decade. In response to this threat to economic growth and prosperity, we created our successful model of pre-employment training for job seekers to qualify for family-sustaining jobs in the industrial sector.

Supported by public, private, and philanthropic investments, WRTP | BIG STEP’s mission is to assist economically disadvantaged minorities, women, and youth (primarily from the central-city) develop the skills needed to participate meaningfully in the workforce and share in the area economy while ensuring that member companies have the skilled workers needed to prosper and grow in a competitive global economy.
