NEW Equity Awards Luncheon Honors Local 3 IBEW Member

Nontraditional Employment for Women's (NEW) Equity Leadership Awards Luncheon celebrates the women building New York City. For more than 40 years NEW has trained and placed women in the skilled construction trades and related fields, helping them secure sustainable wages for themselves and their families. The women who enter the doors of NEW are changed; they walk out confident and ready to begin their journey in a new career. The Equity Leadership Awards Luncheon recognizes the hard work and dedication of NEW students and graduates as well as those who support them.

Each year NEW has the opportunity to honor leaders in the construction, labor, and real estate communities as well as an outstanding tradeswoman that is making a difference in New York City and the surrounding areas. This year that tradeswoman was Journeywoman and NEW graduate Keisha Spradley of Local #3 IBEW. Keisha was honored at NEW's virtual luncheon on Thursday-- click here to watch video of the event.
