On June 21, 2018, the Nontraditional Employment for Women (NEW) organization held a luncheon at the New York Hilton to celebrate its 40th anniversary. One of the attendees and honorees was Sinade Wadsworth of Local 157.
NEW prepares, trains, and places women in careers within the skilled trades – construction, utility, and maintenance. Sinade received an Equity Leadership Award for her role in assisting women with these career choices.
In speaking to the audience (photo on stage), Sinade talked about her path to becoming a journey-level Carpenter and discussed how NEW has impacted the trades. New York City District Council Sisters were there to support Sinade, as were her family and friends. The audience also included NEW supporters and program participants.
Sinade was honored to be honored!
