Women in Welding

Welding is a universal skill that is in high demand, and strong welding skills are sought after in many Australian industries. In keeping with our vision to facilitate the growth of a world class welding industry, Weld Australia is committed to empowering women to become qualified for and able to enjoy a career in welding.

Weld Australia advocates for policies and practices that promote equitable access and working conditions for women entering trades employment, particularly in the welding sector. As part of our lobbying and advocacy activities, we are working towards establishing a framework for policymakers, peak bodies, and industry to develop programs and initiatives that encourage women at all career stages to consider trades as an option.
