Vermont Works for Women announces its 20th annual Women Can Do exposition, taking place at Vermont Technical Center in Randolph on October 11, 2018. Over 500 high school girls from across the state will participate in dozens of workshops and hands-on learning activities designed to expose them to jobs and careers considered non-traditional for their gender. These include jobs in the fields of forensics, law enforcement, forestry, coding, and the skilled trades.

Research shows job segregation is one of the key causes of the wage gap between men and women. To address that discrepancy, girls need greater exposure to real world examples of how STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) studies translate to jobs that are relevant to them. They also need more exposure to careers that don’t require a college education but can still lead to economic security, such as the skilled trades.

At Women Can Do, over 65 businesses, educators, and public service providers will provide their time and expertise to engage girls in activities that include climbing a 40 ft. fire ladder, building a robot, solving an animal poaching case, wiring a solar array, and creating an on-line game, to name a few.

The mission of Vermont Works for Women is to help women and girls recognize their potential and explore, pursue, and excel in work that leads to economic independence.
