Advanced Technology Careers for Women
Led by Deborah Porto, Dean of Business and Advanced Technologies at Johnston Community College, this webinar takes a look at a National Science Foundation project that’s been increasing career awareness among high school counselors, faculty, parents, and students with the goal of increasing female participation in engineering technology programs. Dr. Porto shares some of the things she’s learned through her work on the project, including strategies for helping high school personnel better understand technology careers in ways that can directly impact recruitment and participation.
