At Drio, we work with amazing women and men in many different industries. But we’ve got an extra soft spot for women leaders in male-dominated fields like trades, science, tech, and engineering.

- Add a headshot and a personal bio to your website
- Talk about why you got into this work—what’s your story?
- Hop on social media and give a reflection on a recent job
- Consider speaking opportunities, whether in-person, virtual, or on a podcast
Your skills and expertise matter.
