Women’s committees throughout IBEW bring sisters together to share, inspire, take action and volunteer, showing what it means to be an IBEW woman in the trades.
Women’s Committee members are advocates for their Union and the building trades; they are mentors, volunteers and friends who understand what it’s like to be a woman in a male-dominated industry.
Local women’s committees are embracing those roles and more, empowering IBEW sisters, spreading goodwill and inspiring future tradeswomen.
Your Local 1620 Women’s Committee was chartered on May 16, 2018 and their mandate is to encourage female members to take on activist and leadership roles within Local 1620 and their communities; and to foster a greater understanding of the social, economic, and health issues that affect working women. To provide education, networking opportunities, and a support system that empowers Local 1620 sisters to be committed, strong Union members, to run for elected public office and to support candidates who uplift women.
1620 Women’s Committee Members: Ann Marie Candow (CC), Janelle Ivany (CC), Ameila Hickey (RS) Frances Rideout, Diane Pye, and Kate Woodford. If you wish to contact this committee, please email us here.
During these uncertain times, your 1620 Women’s Committee is here for you.“We will come together again by staying apart for now. Stay safe, stay well.“
