Many women had a hand in founding and nurturing Tradeswomen, Inc. through the years. At our 25th anniversary, TWI honored three of our founding sisters who were still actively leading, supporting and advocating for women in the trades. We would again like to salute Madeline Mixer, Molly Martin and Salafai (Susie) J. Suafai, enduring champions for tradeswomen after 35 years!
Madeline Mixer, our Women’s Bureau partner in the early decades, continues as one of our staunchest supporters. TWI has proudly named its Tradeswomen of the Future Scholarship fund in her honor.
Molly Martin, now retired as an electrician, actively works with Tradeswomen and volunteers in our activities.
Susie Suafai is on staff with Tradeswomen, Inc. as Program Manager.
