Who We Are
What We Do
Professional development includes building your personal brand. That can include building confidence, working on skills like public speaking, creating a network, and finding assistance with advancing your career. Build a Dream is here to help!
In partnership with WFS Ltd. and Milwaukee Tool, this program encourages young women to pursue a skilled trades path. Individuals who have registered for a trades program can apply for the chance to win one of 100 tool bags filled with job essentials (a $150 value!) and gain access to a network of support.
As a Dream Maker, you will share your journey and valuable career insight with young audiences and families. We connect with young women in many ways and want to introduce them to a large variety of underrepresented careers, while spotlighting women in these industries. Dream Makers choose their commitment level and can include interviews for blog/media, podcast guest, Facebook Live Q&As, and joining as a panelist for career discovery expos (held virtually or in-person).
What you share does matter!
If you work in a field where women are under-represented, or if you are part of an initiative to balance the workforce, we want to share your story. Guests of the Perfectly Unfiltered podcast provide insight on a day-in-the-life, share advice and career journeys, and/or highlight their work to build inclusive environments.
We count on our committed volunteers throughout the year, assisting with various projects and events. Volunteering is a great way to meet new people, experience new opportunities, and strengthen community ties. Volunteering allows you to demonstrate and enhance current skills, while also learning new ones that can increase future opportunities.
Please send your resume and letter of intent to firstname.lastname@example.org
This council of professional women from under-represented fields meets to share their experience with and best practices for personal career growth and increasing representation in their respective industries.
The insight gained from the council helps Build a Dream drive knowledge-based programs that continue to evolve with the workforce.
Our partners are eager to meet top talent.
