Women Can Do 

Annual conference PROMOTING STEM & TRADES CAREERS

October 6th, 2022 at Vermont Technical College

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 is returning in-person on October 6th, 2022! We will be limiting student participation to 250 students, and requiring all attendees to be fully vaccinated. To increase accessibility for underserved regions of Vermont, we will be modifying our fee structure to now be based on each school's ability to pay and their concentration of economically disadvantaged students.  

Conference Schedule (8:45 am - 1:20 pm)

Welcome Ceremony: Join VWW staff and get excited for the day's activities

Action Expo: The action expo is returning bigger and better than ever. There will be TWO locations (indoor and outdoor) where students can meet female professionals and try out a variety of new skills, from programming a robot to using a chainsaw.

Resource Fair: The Resource Fair is an opportunity for students to meet local employers and learn more about a variety of career fields. 

Women Can Do exists because “you can’t be what you can't see” and we know it’s more important than ever to introduce high schoolers to the myriad career options before them and inspire them to dream big about their futures. We can’t wait! We hope to see you at Women Can Do on October 6th!

Registration Opens September 1, 2022!

The 2022 Women Can Do conference will be limited to 250 students. In an effort to allow as many schools as possible to participate, each school can register 10 students maximum during Wave 1. Should registration slots remain open, we will allow additional students from interested schools to register during Wave 2.

Registration Wave 1: September 1 – 22

Registration Wave 2: September 23 – 30

Participation Fees:

Vermont Works for Women is committed to reducing the cost of conference participation for all schools. The fee structure below reflects our effort to increase the accessibility of the conference for schools with higher concentrations of economically disadvantaged students. We are using free and reduced school meal enrollment (21-22 data here) as a suggested measure of low versus high-income schools. Should your school have majority or high enrollment in free and reduced meals, we suggest the low-income fee category, and vice versa. This is a suggestion and based on the honor system – we encourage you to make the fee structure selection that best suits your school’s budget and ability to pay.

I like the hands-on work like woodworking or power tools, and a lot of times I feel like I can't get a lot of opportunities to use them.
