On the 4th of July, Graham sponsored the 2018 Women Installers Together Conference, run by Stopcocks Women Plumbers. With over 80 plumbers, trainee plumbers and gas engineers in attendance, the free one-day event included listening to guest speaker Anna Hemmings MBE, training and the chance to talk to us and other industry brands. The aim of the annual conference is to help tradeswomen gain confidence in their work and encourage them to success.
Working with trainees as well as qualified plumbers, Stopcock’s aim is to empower women to join skilled trades, as well as create a comfortable environment where tradeswomen can find support and gain the relevant skills. Founded by Hattie Hasan in 1990, Stopcocks is built on experienced female plumbers with customer service at its heart.
We were thrilled to sponsor the event this year, and recognise the excellent work Stopcocks is doing to encourage women to enter into careers within the construction sector, something that is more important than ever.
