Wollongong Start-up SALT Has Evolved into a National Body Encouraging More Women into Trades

(SALT Australia president and founder Fiona Shewring)

Wollongong is the ancestral home of Supporting and Linking Tradeswomen (SALT) which is now moving into a new office at Fairy Meadow to accommodate the exponential growth over the last 12 months...

SALT has also made significant progress with its annual Tradeswomen Conference in Australia. The first one was held at the Wollongong Town Hall in 2016. The second was in Brisbane. And the next one in Sydney in October will include a 10 year celebration and gala awards night.

"We are working with organisations such as the Air Force and BlueScope Steel, which is a major sponsor for the conference", Ms Shewring said.

"BlueScope is doing great things as well in terms of their trade diversity. We are hoping all the companies who have been doing really well will put themselves in for a chance to win at the national awards night."
