ANEW’s Diversity & Inclusion Summit will be held this Thursday, July 11, 2019 at IBEW Local 46 in Kent (map below).

This Summit is designed to be a valuable tool for ALL contractors, subcontractors, and any company with an HR department focused on inclusive procedures both in the office and on the jobsite.


ANEW was founded in 1980 by people dedicated to improving the access and advancement of women in non-traditional career pathways such as construction and manufacturing.

ANEW continues to focus on equity and inclusion in the construction industry for both women and people of color.

ANEW is the oldest, continuously running pre-apprenticeship program in the nation with a unique and successful reputation for training people to enter the construction industry.

ANEW partners with over 17 apprenticeship programs in the Puget Sound region. In addition to the apprenticeship programs, ANEW collaborates with public partners, other pre-apprenticeship programs and employers. Because of our strong partners, we are able to see clients successfully apply to and be accepted in apprenticeship programs. ANEW continues to offer retention services to clients for two years, resulting in increased retention for pre-apprenticeship graduates.

ANEW does not discriminate on the basis of age, national origin, race, ethnicity, gender, background, religion, sexual orientation, or disability.
