IDOL is joining a national coalition to recognize women working in construction trades. IDOL spoke with Michelle Wayne, of IBEW Local 146 and Leanne Skuse, the president of River City Construction, LLC.

Skuse, who's worked in construction for 18 years, told IDOL she's always been fascinated by buildings and structures -- thanks to playing with LEGO at an early age.

"While completing my undergraduate internship with an architectural firm, I was afforded the opportunity to work on a project that was already in its construction phase. Watching that building come to life and the experience on that jobsite intrigued me - the excitement of construction is pretty hard to beat!"

Read more about our Chief of Staff, Dana O'Leary.

Because January is National Mentoring Month, Lend-A-Hand Tutoring at the The Chicago Bar Association is asking its volunteers why they tutor.

Dana O’Leary became a new mom in June and Illinois Department of Labor Chief of Staff in September—yet she continues to tutor fifth-grader Caleb. “I tutor because reading has always been a huge part of my life. Since I was an infant my dad would read stories to me of all kinds, long and short, novels and magazine articles. Tutoring is my way of showing these students the value of reading.”
