๐ŸŒŸ Empower Your Counselors ๐Ÿ”ฅ Unlock Women's Potential in STEM! ๐Ÿš€

Counselors frequently receive criticism for the underrepresentation of women in STEM or CTE Career Pathways.

Most counselors are female themselves and require access to the same career information that would be provided to prospective female students.

It is crucial for them to understand that these Pathways are viable options for women and know how to generate interest among female students.

One counselor, who participated in our WomenTech Bootcamp Training held in June, articulated this sentiment perfectly.

โ€œThe most valuable result in the WomenTech Educators Training is real-world awareness not only that all programs can be pitched to women โ€“ but exactly how to do it.

Women are too often guided away from fields traditionally filled by men. If we didnโ€™t change our messaging, weโ€™d be hurting women and our own program.

Please donโ€™t cheat your program or the women who are a great fit! You really have to attend the WomenTech Educators Training, to give your institution equal footing in the competition for great candidates. Youโ€™ll be glad you did!โ€
