Why do classes specify gender?
I am passionate about teaching people who are not traditionally represented in the trades including women, trans*, & non-binary people. I love the energy & empowerment that comes from a space designed for inclusivity & diversity – especially when it’s about a niche that has historically been exclusive to so many of us.
We also believe it’s important for boys and men to learn new trades skills from and around women, which is why many of our classes are open to all genders.
Who is included in ‘women’?
Here at The Dapper Hammer, we’re all about diversity and inclusion. Please note that by ‘women’ and ‘young women’ we are referring to people who identify as female regardless of what gender they were assigned at birth, as well as people who live outside the gender binary and would feel comfortable in a women-centric space.
We are constantly striving to create a space that is safe and inclusive of all and welcome your feedback on this language.
