The IATSE Women’s Committee is dedicated to providing networking and mentorship opportunities, to be a meaningful resource for educational tools, social media campaigns and community outreach and activism for women of the IATSE. The Committee endeavors to create a sense of community throughout the geographic and craft diversity of our union, and through highlighting the achievements of women in the IATSE and the labor movement, works to enhance women’s potential for success in our union, in our places of work, and in our communities.
