Featured Tools & Tiaras Inc. focuses on teaching girls about the trades

Many of the girl students enrolled in professional courses want a role that lets them earn a stable income while working a flexible schedule. Beyond gender priorities, many organizations support women at work. One of them is SupplyHouse.com, an e-commerce company that sells plumbing, heating, and HVAC supplies is trying to fix jobs for young girls of America. Recently they featured Tools & Tiaras Inc. in their Trade Life video series which is a non- profit organization that teaches girls about plumbing, electrical, architecture, and iron working during their yearly one-week summer camp program in New York City.

Since the 1970s, women have made up only 3% of trade professionals. With a spirit to close this gender gap Judaline Cassidy, a plumber for Local Union 1 in NYC wants to see more women at work. Judaline is passionate about her profession and building America, spreads love and confidence to young girls, introducing them to exciting opportunities in the trades and showing them that jobs have no gender. Her non-profit organization, Tools & Tiaras, gives children the power to be leaders in whatever they choose to do.

SupplyHouse.com’s Trade Life series shares contractor’s stories in an effort to champion tradespeople. When SupplyHouse.com came across Tools & Tiara’s story – they knew it was a perfect fit.

We were really excited about Tools & Tiaras because it checked all our boxes,” said Emily Rosa, SupplyHouse.com Videographer. “Trade Life videos showcase stories of people that impact the trades and their communities. Trade education as a whole is important, but what stood out to us is that Judaline is a female plumber teaching young girts the notion that they can work in this male-dominated industry,” Rosa continued.

Judaline Cassidy recognized early in her career that women make up a small percentage of trades professionals. Later, it became her passion to break gender stereotypes and teach girls about the trades. She works hard to ensure that girls recognize the trades as a viable option for when they enter the workforce. This is why SupplyHouse.com was proud to feature her story in their most recent Trade Life video. She admits that it was difficult back then getting to the trades and it’s still difficult now. “As a woman, you have to work twice as hard. People look at you and they already put in a box,” she continued.
