Exciting things have been happening behind the scenes at Tradeswomen Building Bridges this week! We recieved an order of TBB merch (to be debuted in London). Delegates are purchasing flights and housing. The details for our Best Practices Workshop are being finalized, and special guests are being added.
We wanted to take some time and recognize our USA support staff. They have been working hard for over a year in order to make this delegation happen for us. These ladies will continue to be on call while we are overseas and assist with whatever we need. Meet Allie and Veronica!
