This week’s guest is not only breaking barriers but also shaping the future of the construction industry.

Erin O’Brien-Hofmann is the Director of Training at the International Union of Painters and Allied Trades.

Erin’s dedication to her role goes beyond just educating and providing experience; she’s a driving force behind empowering individuals within the painting, glazing, and drywall industries.

When she’s not in the classroom, Erin is out there on the ground, tirelessly recruiting both men and women, bridging the gap and ensuring equal opportunities for all.

For years, Erin has been leading the charge as the instructor for the Women in Nontraditional Careers Trades Readiness program.

Through this initiative, women are equipped with essential skills ranging from construction math to OSHA 10, paving their path towards successful careers in the trades.

What truly sets Erin apart is her unwavering passion and commitment to reaching out to other women, inspiring them to consider a career in the building trades.

Her love for the job shines through, and we’re honored to hear her story and the impact she’s making in this traditionally male-dominated field.
