Not Nontraditional: Women in the Building Trades

Wednesday, march 24, 2021
1:00PM-2:30PM EST
Free Webinar

According to the Department of Labor, construction is a “nontraditional” career field for women because we account for fewer than 25% of the registered workforce. The term “nontraditional”, however, implies that women did not and do not traditionally participate in construction work. This is inaccurate. This misconception erases women’s contribution to historic structures and disservices present-day women working in building trades. This webinar will delve into women’s roles in construction, historically and today.

Finding Common Ground: Can Archaeologists and Relic Hunters Work Together?

THURSDAY, April 15, 2021

Relic hunting has exploded during the COVID-19 pandemic with families looking for socially distanced, outdoor activities. Most of these history-lovers are unaware that sensitive historic sites might be damaged in the process. Meanwhile, archaeologists are alarmed by the damage but rarely reach out to the relic hunting community to find productive alternatives to what they see as “looting”. It’s time to talk about it! Join a panel of archaeologists and avocationalists for a civil conversation about positive ways to discover the marvels of the past. Hosted in cooperation with the Council for Maryland Archaeology. This webinar is part of the Council for Maryland Archeology Webinar series. For more information on the webinar series, visit
