Episode 5 - Bringing men into the convo

I was shocked to learn that only approximately 4% of employees in the trades are women in BC and that's across all trades.

In this episode

This season, we’ve talked to women about the challenges they’re facing at work and the barriers there still are to leadership, but we can’t do it alone. If anything is going to change, we’ll need men on our side. 

Today, Carla chats with City Arborist and Supervisor of Urban Forestry Joe McLeod and Director of Parks at the Vancouver Board of Parks and Recreation Amit Gandha about how equity will help everyone. They discuss issues they’ve seen at work, how they’ve reacted, and the importance of improving hiring practices and increasing women’s representation in the trades and leadership roles.
