There’s been a lot of talk lately about the welder shortage:
- “Solving The Welder Shortage: he nation is starving for welders. Here’s how you can make a difference.” by Jim Horvath
- “Solving the Welder Shortage One Tinkerer at a Time,” Miller Viewpoints
- “Where Have all the Welders Gone…” by Ilan Brat, Wall Street Journal
And there’s been a lot of talk about why women don’t become welders (too tough a job, too dirty, etc)
The fact is there are a lot of misconceptions about what kind of work welding is, and what kind of women weld… and I’d like to do my part to change that.
We have a regular feature for this site, the NEW ROSIES where we feature the amazing women who weld.
If you know a woman who welds, or if you are a woman who welds and would like to be featured, contact me directly: carmenelectrode –at– arc-zone.com. (or you can use the Contact Carmen Electrode form). I’m looking for all kinds of women to showcase the variety of opportunities there are for women whether its your hobby or profession I want to hear from you!
NOTE: this is an ongoing project. Check out the fabulous female fabricators we’ve featured, our New Rosies.
