Women in the trade fields might seem scarce but throughout the years, and the years to come, they are growing in numbers joining the 390.7 billion U.S. dollars industry.
1 and 10 people working in this industry are female, which is expected to grow by over 8% in the next decade. With this more women are also pursuing franchising when opening their businesses.
In 2020, 41% of every person who opened a franchise in the past year was a women-owned business. This represents women's progress in entrepreneurship, which Mister Sparky promotes by being a part of the DiversityFran Program that gives $5,000 off the initial franchise fee to any woman who wants to own a franchise.
