Thompson Rivers University has officially opened its New Gold Women in Trades and Technology Resource Centre. The centre, which is funded by New Gold Inc, will support women who are pursuing training in the trades. It will be a hub for students and staff to gather, and will include a variety of resources such as flexible teaching space, technology, a private meeting room, a functional classroom, and an office for the program coordinator. The centre will focus on supporting diversity in the skilled trades to meet British Columbia’s labour shortages. TRU Note: Archived stories may contain dead links or be missing source links.
