What if women built the world they want to see? (Ted Talk)


Emily Pilloton-Lam

 TEDWomen 2021

Only 4% of construction workers are female -- that's totally unacceptable, but it's also a huge opportunity both for women and for the trades, says youth educator and builder Emily Pilloton-Lam. She makes the case for putting power (and power tools) into the hands of young women and gender-expansive youth, dreaming of inclusive construction sites and daring to ask: What if women built the world they want to see? Emily dazzles with a live demo of her own woodworking skills whilst giving the talk.
