You are cordially invited to the 2022 Women in Apprenticeship Summit to mark the 85th Anniversary of the National Apprenticeship Act and National Apprenticeship Week (NAW) during the week of November 14-20, 2022. Co-sponsored by the U.S. Department of Labor, Texas Workforce Commission, Office of Apprenticeship, the Gulf Coast Region Apprenticeship Hub (GCRAH), HCC Office of Work-Based Learning & Industry Partnerships, and many more this landmark event features a line-up of women leaders across high-demand industries along with representatives from the Department of Labor, TWC, and others to speak on the significance of apprenticeships to a rewarding career. The event is open to students, career seekers and employers across the greater Houston area.
The theme for the HCC Women in Apprenticeship Summit is, "Fit to Grow," and will highlight how Registered Apprenticeship, a proven and industry-driven training model, provides a critical talent pipeline that can help address some of our nation’s pressing workforce challenges such as rebuilding our country’s infrastructure, addressing critical supply chain demands, supporting a clean energy workforce, modernizing our cybersecurity response, and responding to healthcare economy issues.
NAW is a nationwide celebration where industry, labor, equity workforce, education, and government leaders host events to showcase the successes and value of Registered Apprenticeship for rebuilding our economy, advancing racial and gender equity, and supporting underserved communities.
