Graham Plumbers’ Merchant is proud to announce its sponsorship of the 2018 Women Installers Together Conference, run by Stopcocks Women Plumbers. To be held on the 4th of July, the free to attend one-day event will include guest speakers, training and the chance to talk to representatives from many top industry brands. Last year, one of the biggest issues raised was the isolation women experience within the plumbing industry. The conference directly addresses this issue due to its significant opportunities for networking, helping tradeswomen to gain confidence in their work and encouraging them on their route to success.
Founded by Hattie Hasan in 1990, Stopcocks is a company built on experienced female plumbers which has grown into a national franchise of tradeswomen with customer service at its heart. Working with trainees as well as qualified plumbers, Stopcocks’ aim is to empower women to join skilled trades as well as creating a comfortable environment where tradeswomen can find support and gain the relevant plumbing skills and competence and fast track their own business to become more profitable, quicker within the Stopcocks franchise.
Sam Canfield, Marketing Manager at Graham commented: “Encouraging women to enter into careers within the construction sector has never been more important. As such we are delighted to sponsor Stopcocks’ Women Installers Together Conference this year, recognising the work it is doing to encourage women into plumbing and proving, with great success, that the industry should not be male-dominated. The exciting event is set to build on the precedent set by the first conference last year by bringing together tradeswomen from all over the country.”
