More than 1,250 women are expected to fill Galveston’s Moody Gardens Convention Center from 8 a.m. until 3 p.m. on Friday, March 20, to learn about expanding opportunities for women in the petrochemical and industrial trades industries.
This marks the Women in Industry Conference’s fifth year, hosted by the Community College Petrochemical Industry (CCPI), a consortium of nine area community colleges.
The one-day event is designed to introduce women to the careers and opportunities available in the petrochemical and industrial skills industries, career fields long dominated by males but now open to women.
The conference is geared for all women—the unemployed or underemployed, high school or college students, veterans and women already in the field, looking to advance in their career paths.
Participants will hear from other women who work in the petrochemical and industrial trades industries and will have the opportunity to talk with college representatives about enrollment, financial aid and other training-related issues. Several major employers are also expected to be present.
