Many factors prevent women from being represented in the trades, one of these being the perfectionism a lot of girls feel very early on in their lives. Not only does this stop them from trying new things, but it also makes them believe that being skilled should come naturally. One non-profit, Girls Build, is looking to overcome this by building curiosity and confidence in girls through introducing them to the world of building. Joining us today is Founder Katie Hughes, who shares her journey.
