She Built This City

Local nonprofit She Built This City empowers girls and women of all ages in the construction and trade industry. Through hands-on elementary camps, middle school clubs, Women@Work Trade Circle mentoring, and advanced training programs, they teach both foundational hammer and nail skills and future-proof skills such as 3D printing.

When the COVID-19 pandemic hit and their ability to deliver programming was hampered, She Built This City quickly pivoted. With funding from the COVID-19 Response Fund, She Built This City found an innovative solution and put their unique mission and skills to work to meet the new immediate need in the community – PPEs.

She Built This City founder Demi Knight Clark breaks down the nuts and bolts of their 3D PPE production initiative and Mobile Tool Lab.
