Women in Trades

MTG Inspection Inc.’s vision of helping women in the trades and technology fields was born out of Theresa’s own desire to help other women either interested in or already working in these fields. Even 28 years after graduating from SAIT, Theresa still sees a lack of women in the trades and technology fields. She has had a successful career and wants to encourage others so they can reap the same benefits. Her successes have not been without its challenges, but she aspires to change or remove stereotypes or misgivings about these fields, encouraging women to connect and to get informed.

Theresa is a member of “Calgary Women in Construction.” She is also connected to different local organizations, such as AWE (Alberta Women Entrepreneurs), where she attends continuing education classes and networking events. Other organizations that she receives information and updates from include:

  • YYCGirlgang (Calgary)
  • Meetup Local networking groups
  • WiRE Women in Renewable Energy
  • WWIC Women Working in Construction
  • PWC Professional Women in Construction
  • SAIT Southern Alberta Institute of Technology
  • STEM Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics
  • CAWC Canadian Association of Women in Construction
  • WBF Women Building Futures
  • Canadian Business Chicks
  • Women in Residential Construction
