Happy 20 Percent Day!
This month, we are showcasing IUOE Operating Engineers Local 98 out of Western MA. With 27.6% women in their apprenticeship program, they currently hold the spot for the highest percentage of women apprentices in the state.
Way to go, IUOE Local 98! Let’s keep pushing beyond 20% toward a more equitable workforce.
On this crew of Local 98 Operating Engineers, woman celebrate being in the majority! #20percentandBEYOND#20percentNOW
About 20% Day
Throughout this year, we are highlighting programs and projects that have reached, exceeded or increased women’s participation by 20% on “Twenty Percent Day,” a social media campaign in which we will release a new statistic that meets or exceeds 20% to showcase progress of PGTI’s labor, apprenticeship and contractor partners.
