ElevatorInfo recently covered a great collaboration between International Union of Elevator Constructors (IUEC) Local 4 Boston and Building Pathways – a non-profit organization based in Boston, MA with a mission to increase the number of diverse workers in the building trades workforce. Together they work on recruitment, retention, and advancement of under-represented groups in the building trades.

In their blog, ElevatorInfo interviews Desalia Gomes, a first-year apprentice at IUEC Local 4 who got her start through a pre-apprenticeship program with Building Pathways. She shares her story on how she got started in the elevator industry, the education and training she was provided access to and opportunities she sees in the elevator industry to further her career and skills.
