Colin Toop
The creator and host of the “Tools of the Trade” Podcast

Tune in to the Tools of The Trade Podcast

To balance the workforce we don’t just need female champions…we also need male champions like Colin Toop. On Colin’s podcast, Tools of the Trade, he shares stories from construction professionals and works to change perceptions and break with the status quo. This includes highlighting women in trades and discussing what it takes to fill skills gaps.

Build a Dream is pleased to announce a partnership with Tools of the Trade. We are proud to partner on this initiative and sponsor each ‘Woman in Industry’ spotlight on the podcast. Together we can increase awareness around the need for quality resources, support, and diversity in construction and skilled trades. 

INSPIRE the WORKFORCE OF TOMORROW!

Share your career journey and industry insight with young women as they explore exciting career opportunities. As a Dream Maker Panelist your messages help students (and their parents) make more-informed decisions about the future.
