Nontraditional Employment for Women Event in Rocklin
On Friday April 19, high school girls, in groups of less than 10, will meet faculty, create a project and learn about careers that are nontraditional for women such as welding, mechatronics, automotive and drafting.
This intimate event will give girls a welcoming introduction to a technical education path at Sierra College. They will see labs, use tools, build projects, meet female college students and learn about careers. The event is designed to connect with girls and inspire their career plans.
- Businesses seek more employees in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM). Women are underrepresented in these fields. Attracting female students to technical careers will help supply workers needed to maintain a global competiveness and provide living wage employment to women.
The event will take place this Friday, April 19, 2013 from 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m at the Sierra College Rocklin campus, 5000 Rocklin Rd., Rocklin in numerous labs.
