This month and at all times, it is important to honor and distinguish between the many cultural identities that make up Native American heritage. “American Indian people are heterogeneous and their histories differ based on tribal affiliation. These groups have tribal councils, or governments, which provide leadership to the tribe,” reports the Wisconsin Department of Health Services, “American Indians continue to maintain a strong presence in Wisconsin, and traditional beliefs and practices remain prominent in American Indian culture.” #WRTP #BIGSTEP #WRTPBIGSTEP #Milwaukee #Madison #Racine #Wisconsin #Trade #Apprenticeship #Construction #Manufacturing #Work #Workforce #Job #Jobs #JobSearch #Hiring #HardWork #WorkHard #Career #Learn #Learning #Community #Union #NativeAmericanHeritageMonth #Native #NativeAmerican #Indigenous #AmericanIndian

Today is National Women in Apprenticeship Day—an opportunity to reflect on the importance of advancing the needs and interests of working women and ensuring that women have access to well-paying, family-sustaining jobs and apprenticeship opportunities. Because of the historic underrepresentation of women in apprenticeship programs and the impact of the pandemic on women’s labor force participation, there is even greater urgency to support women’s participation in Registered Apprenticeships. WRTP / BIG STEP is committed to increasing the number of women entering and completing apprenticeships in “nontraditional” occupations 💪 #WRTP #BIGSTEP #WRTPBIGSTEP #Milwaukee #Madison #Racine #Wisconsin #Trade #Apprenticeship #Construction #Manufacturing #Work #Workforce #Job #Jobs #JobSearch #Hiring #HardWork #WorkHard #Career #Learn #Learning #Community #Union #WomenInTrades
