Women Can Do
Annual conference PROMOTING STEM & TRADES CAREERS
Women Can Do is our annual career exploration conference for high school girls and gender-expansive youth. Students are invited to Vermont Technical College in Randolph, VT for a day of hands-on exploration of STEM and trades careers, and networking with VT professionals, employers, and organizations to learn about secondary education and career opportunities in the state.
Women Can Do returned in-person on October 6th, 2022. Over 260 high school students from 12 of the 14 counties in Vermont came to Vermont Technical College in Randolph. We had over 40 exhibitors at our Indoor and Outdoor Action Expo, where students learned new skills like welding and how to change a tire. They had the opportunity to fly a flight simulator with BETA Technologies, operate a backhoe with Vermont Agency of Transportation, and much more. At the Resource Hall students talked with 30+ organizations and employers, learning about community resources they can tap into and future career opportunities available in Vermont.
