Children’s book features women working in trades

A children’s book designed to challenge gender stereotypes in the trades sector features NICEIC registered electrical contractor Mandy Reynolds.

Yes We Can! was produced by Sheffield-based charity Women in Engineering, Science and Technology (WEST).

In addition to Ms Reynolds, the book features characters based on real-life tradeswomen including Kay the plumber and Tracy the bricklayer.

“Sheffield has a proud history of excellent tradeswomen like Mandy, and we’re chuffed to be able to celebrate them,” said author Liz Kettle. “Our aim is to inspire a whole new generation with these role models.”

Ms Reynolds established her business Mand Made in 2008. She won the national Which? Local Business of the Year Award in 2011 and again, for the Yorkshire region, in 2013.
