President, Sisters in the Building Trades
Melina has been working with Tradeswomen, their causes, issues and solutions for over a decade. She has served as the president of the Sisters in the Building Trades since January of 2006. She very likely holds the record for connecting more tradeswomen across the US, Canada and around the world than any other activist. Though her main focus is tradeswomen in the US, she has been working to involve them in global outreach to tradeswomen around the globe as a way to find, encourage and empower leaders to take on the challenges and long term solutions to change their history.
