Inclusion And Worker Well-Being In The Trades (Part 2‪)‬ What's work got to do with it?

    • Science

In Part 2 of the Inclusion and Worker Well-Being in the Trades series, we interview Tiffany Thompson, former Director of Workforce Equity and Technical Assistance of Oregon Tradeswomen and Dr. Maura Kelly an Associate Professor of Sociology at Portland State University. 

Both Tiffany and Maura support, engage and help workplaces gain tools and provide education for respectful workplace programs. They provide program support and research opportunities to help build capacity, such as investing resources and time to contribute to cultural shifts needed on trade job sites.

Tiffany started her career working with survivors of interpersonal violence where she also provided training for service providers on how to work with individuals who have experienced trauma. In 2013, Tiffany first began working at Oregon Tradeswomen and saw the overlap between her previous work and the experiences of tradeswomen in the field. Since then, she has been working diligently, within and outside of construction, to bring about culture change to ensure that no one experiences the trauma that can come from harassment, bullying, hazing, and any type of interpersonal violence.

Dr. Maura Kelly is an Associate Professor of Sociology at Portland State University. She researches inequalities in the construction trades and advocates to increase opportunities for women and people of color. Dr. Kelly's evaluation research has assessed a variety of programs intended to increase the recruitment and retention of diverse workers in the trades, including the ODOT/BOLI Highway Construction Workforce Development Program, Green Dot for the Trades, the City of Seattle Acceptable Work Sites training, Mentorship Matters, as well as the Oregon Tradeswomen and Constructing Hope pre-apprenticeship programs.
