Introduce students to diverse role models here in Vermont and in their local community
Tech@Work is a speaker series that introduces students to gender-diverse role models in their fields of interest and provides opportunities for career exploration. Tech@Work brings local industry professionals – predominately women or gender-expansive individuals – to talk with students about their experiences in a nontraditional career field for their gender.
Although this program focuses primarily on gender, Vermont Works for Women is committed to highlighting Tech@Work speakers who hold other diverse identities as well, including race, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, lived life experiences, and education level. Representation matters – especially in role models for young people.
