Perform a study to determine the structural issues in the welding labor market facing women and how to tailor recruitment and training efforts to increase the amount of women who are hired and trained in the welding field for shipbuilding. This project will leverage efforts similar to the Women Who Weld program run in Detroit and other sources of training that is specific to women to determine a baseline for expected results. The project will seek to incorporate techniques and lessons learned into existing recruitment and training programs.
