Removing Barriers and Creating Opportunities

Lendlease is partnering with The Chicago Cook Workforce Partnership (The Partnership) to promote workforce development in the construction industry in the City of Chicago. Lendlease established a Fund to mitigate certain costs that can prevent job seekers from obtaining and sustaining work in construction trades. In addition to providing supportive services, Lendlease is supporting The Partnership’s affiliated organizations such as Chicago Women in Trades (CWIT) and Revolution Workshop to provide training for women and underserved communities interested in construction jobs.

The Partnership is generating awareness about the construction trades, creating a pipeline of new skilled tradespeople and removing barriers to create pathways to employment. Our goal is simple – we are connecting job seekers with opportunities. Are you interested in working in the construction industry or a local organization interested in obtaining more information about this Fund? Contact Shoshiwa Shields via email at for more details.
