Girls Exploring Trades and Technologies Conference

The 2019 Girls Exploring Trades and Technologies Conference will take place on May 9, 2019, at the Edmonton EXPO Centre. Registration is now open! 



Are there young women in your school who would benefit from a fun-filled day of exploration, education, and empowerment?  

Skills Canada Alberta is excited to present the 18th Annual GETT Conference! GETT highlights the various career opportunities available to young women in the trades and technologies and encourages girls to think outside the box and try new things. We want the young women in Alberta to have the courage to discover and develop their interests and talents in areas they are passionate about. 

High School girls will hear from and interact with female Industry Influencers from various trade and technology backgrounds who have pursued a rewarding career. Their stories, experiences, and knowledge will motivate students to open their minds to the diverse career paths available in today's most dynamic industries.

We have put together a fresh new schedule for the 2019 GETT Conference. Check it out below!
