American Welding Society Releases Podcast Showcasing Insights from Women in Welding


The American Welding Society (AWS) has released the latest episode of its Arc Junkies podcast on “Overcoming Obstacles: Women in Welding.” The episode examines some of the unique challenges that women in welding face, such as finding appropriate personal protective equipment, dealing with gender bias, and navigating male-dominated work environments.

Host Jason Becker speaks with women in the trade who offer insights to other women looking to join the industry. Guests include Tiffany Orff, owner of Welding Women Syndicate; Kelli Royals, Navy veteran, professional welder, and author of the children’s book Willow Discovers Welding; and Amy Roosa, founder of The Safety Rack, an organization that advocates for better PPE for women in the trade industry.

Access the episode on AWS’s podcast page.
