Memphis Light, Gas and Water is hosting its Nontraditional Careers for Women forum on Nov. 13 at the Salvation Army Kroc Center, 800 E. Parkway South, near the corner of Central and East Parkway.
The free event runs from 10 a.m. until 1:30 p.m. with lunch provided. Space is limited to the first 150 women who sign up online at bit.ly/MLGWWomen
Participants will hear from MLGW workers who blazed the nontraditional trail years ago. Nontraditional utility jobs are those in which women make up less than 25 percent of the workforce. These are often blue collar jobs that entail walking long distances, climbing utility poles or working in confined spaces in all types of weather conditions.
This is not a jobs fair. Only the first 150 women to sign up will be admitted to the forum.
