Mark Vitow Ltd Partners with Women Installers Together Conference in 3 Year Sponsorship
Mark Vitow Limited, the family-owned national distributor and manufacturer of plumbing and heating products, is pleased to announce a three year sponsorship of the Women Installers Together conference (WIT).
WIT started in 2017 as the only national event for women plumbers and heating engineers. It’s still the only one, but has opened its arms to all skilled tradeswomen, women trainees, and male allies (a growing group).
Taking place on 4 July at London Metropolitan University, it’s a full day event with a celebrity speaker, tradeswomen talking about their lives, and round table discussions on hot-topics for women in the skilled trades.
“With women in skilled trades still only around 1% of all tradespeople, this event is the only opportunity for many to meet others who share their unique experiences,” explains Hattie Hasan MBE, founder of Stopcocks Group Limited, the Register of Tradeswomen CIC and the Women Installers Together conference. “WIT provides loads of opportunities to meet other tradeswomen, share their experiences, talk, listen and forge friendships, and to meet our fantastic sponsors!”
Mark Vitow Ltd are proud to champion women in the industry and look forward to another brilliant event this year. Managing Director, Matthew Phillips, says: “I am delighted and proud to commit Mark Vitow Limited to supporting the Women Installers Together events in 2023, 2024 and 2025. The values and mission of Stopcocks Group Limited are aligned with our own – respect, integrity, innovation and ambition – and we have been inspired by what they have achieved in recent years. Thank you to Hattie, Mica and the team for having us on board!”
“We’re thrilled that Mark Vitow have not only sponsored the WIT event again this year, they have committed to support it for the next three,” says Hattie. “It means so much when companies, manufacturers and organisations demonstrate their ongoing commitment to supporting greater inclusivity in the skilled trades sector. We do get some box ticking and lip service, and then some companies step right up to the plate. It means a lot.”
If you employ or would like to employ tradeswomen, WIT invites you to come along and find out what will attract them to your company.
Free tickets for all tradeswomen and trainees will be released soon. For more information visit https://stopcocks.uk/conference/.
