In-person Events

The health and wellbeing of Women of PLT members, partners and the community is our top priority. In support of the Government of Ontario’s recommendations to take responsible action to contain COVID-19, we have made the necessary decision to postpone in-person events for the time being.

CAN I BRING A FRIEND / PARENT WITH ME TO AN EVENT?

Yes! Women of PLT events offer an open and informal gathering to network in support of women in trade and technical roles in the electricity sector. When in-person events were being hosted, often emerging and young women in the trade were most comfortable bringing a friend or parent along with them to our events. Sometimes women in the trade can be geographically isolated from other women in the trades / technical roles simply because there are so few of us. Friends and parents provide a great deal of support and are eager to meet with other women in the trades.
