Melbourne Chippy Chick (MCC)/ Stefanie Apostolidis has proudly founded Tradie Lady Club (TLC) to raise awareness of Female careers in Construction and Trade.
The goal is to Support, Inspire and Connect women who are existing Tradies or aspire to take up a trade.
With our social up roar we aim to slowly change the mind set of those who still think "Trades are only for men"
@MelbourneChippyChick's @TLCBYMCC Instagram accounts and have received an overwhelming response which highlights the importance of continuing to promote the Tradie Lady Club message.
Our vision is to see more Females take the opportunity to follow their passion, learn a trade and to encourage their family and friends to be supportive of their decisions.
Ladies can be tradies too.
With your support, we can develop an amazing community where women can celebrate their achievements and knowledge, inspire each other and encourage more women to be part of a trade.
Support us through our social channels

Who is Melbourne Chippy Chick ?
Stef is a qualified Carpenter and site manager, she works full time for her fathers building company and is currently studying for her builder's license.
I started my Instagram in Aug 2018, I gained a large genuine following which has attracted so many like minded people, alone with making thousands of friends I met a few Tradie Ladies on Instagram, this formed a small group which started from me printing bumper stickers, to now holding events Australia wide from scuba diving, camping trips and BBQ's in the park.
Throughout the journey we have taken on some awesome sponsors which have helped dramatically.

The TLC has changed my life, taught me so much, pushed me out of my comfort zone, to fight for things I truly believe in, and for people I truly believe in.
Smash it out and do what you love!!!
Women of today will not be alone through their apprenticeship/ Trade career like a lot of us were.
We have made a change, we are making changes!
Together We are Stronger!!
