Breaking boundaries: Celebrating women in male-dominated trades

Taskher woman

As we celebrate diversity and equality in today's society, it's crucial to challenge and break down stereotypes that limit individuals based on gender. In particular, the idea that certain jobs are "reserved for men" is outdated and unjust. At Lukango, we firmly believe in empowering women to excel in any profession, including the traditionally male-dominated trades industry. This is one of the reasons we have been so excited to partner with the incredible TaskHer.

Acknowledging women's skills and expertise

In recent years, women have been making significant strides in male-dominated trades, demonstrating their exceptional skills and expertise. From carpentry to plumbing, electrical work to roofing, women are proving that gender is not a determinant of competence. Lukango proudly showcases the female tradespeople who have not only shattered glass ceilings but are now leading the way in their respective fields. We are honoured to provide a platform for homeowners to connect with these talented women, ensuring top-notch service and craftsmanship.

Insurance for trades

At Lukango, we understand the importance of ensuring peace of mind for both homeowners and tradespeople. That's why we provide comprehensive insurance coverage for trades carried out through our platform. We believe that every homeowner and tradesperson should have protection and security throughout the project. Our insurance coverage includes liability insurance, ensuring that both parties are safeguarded against any unforeseen events or damages. With Lukango, you can be confident that you're working with skilled tradeswomen who are not only talented but also covered by insurance, providing a worry-free experience for everyone involved.

The importance of representation

Representation matters. By highlighting and promoting the accomplishments of women in traditionally male-dominated trades, we encourage young girls to envision their own path in these professions. When girls see women thriving in these fields, it sparks their ambition and dreams, giving them the confidence to pursue any career they desire. At Lukango, we're committed to normalising the idea that anyone, regardless of gender, can succeed and excel in any chosen field. Together, we can create a future where gender stereotypes no longer define career choices.

Overcoming challenges

While progress has been made, we acknowledge that there are still underlying challenges women face in breaking into male-dominated trades. Biases, stereotypes, and unequal opportunities persist. But at Lukango, we stand as a united force to support and uplift women, providing a platform for their skills and talents to shine. We will continue to advocate for equal opportunities, working towards levelling the playing field and fostering an inclusive trades industry.

Let's drive change, together

Breaking boundaries and normalising women in male-dominated trades isn't a task we can achieve alone—it requires collective effort. Lukango invites you to join us in celebrating the achievements of women in these fields. Let's challenge societal norms, recognise their contributions, and pave the way for a more inclusive and equal future.

As a society, we have to continue to challenge stereotypes and uplift women in male-dominated trades. At Lukango, we're committed to bringing about a sea change in how these industries are perceived. Through the work that we do we aim to inspire young girls to embrace their passions and pursue careers irrespective of societal expectations!
