Ally Jencson

“I believe there is a rebel inside each of us! It’s just waiting to be untamed so we can unleash our unique bad-assery.”

ALLY JENCSON

Strong. Resourceful. Rebel.

Allison “Ally” Jencson, sometimes called the Tradeswoman Tigress, is fiercely passionate about helping women be successful in the construction and trades industries. As the leader of her own trades business, Ally discovered that there aren’t many resources for the 2% of female construction workers who are tradeswomen. And so, being the resourceful rebel that she is, Ally created Girder Skirts™. A community for tradeswomen to support and connect with each other, just like a girder does for a physical structure. She has over 15 years of trades business experience to back up what she teaches. Ally knows it takes more than hard work and dedication to run a family and a business at the same time. It takes being a rebel and doing things differently!

Ally brings her insight, experience and rebellious spirit to the stage with a passion to inspire her audiences to step into their confidence and unleash the bad ass she believes resides in all of us. As a female business owner in the construction trades, Ally has been on both sides of the proverbial fence. She’s been in the trenches doing the dirty work as well as the “behind the scenes” challenges of running a business as the CEO. She had to learn on her own how to be brave and embrace her leadership abilities. Through overcoming business and personal challenges, Ally has aligned with her “inner rebel” AND built bad ass businesses. Ally is so approachable and authentic. She has an uncanny ability to tune-in with her audiences, connecting with them on a deeper level and creating experiential keynotes with great take-aways.

Just One of the Guys: How to Stay Feminine in the Construction Industry
Women working in male-dominated industries face a variety of challenges, including:
• Pervasive stereotypes, such as that of the “caring mother” or the ‘office housekeeper.’
• The view that women are outsiders and threaten the norm.
• Higher stress levels and performance expectations
• Fewer mentoring opportunities
• Sexual harassment.

Ally teaches other women in male dominated industries to be proud of and embrace our femininity. Through sharing her own personal experiences, Ally helps women to see the value of being a woman in a man’s world. She mentors female audiences to tap into their own unique bad-assery, to confidently maintain their femininity and communicate with heart-centered assurance, despite any negative behavior from their industry peers.
