Women in Technology and Trades Panel Discussion and Luncheon

Women in Technology and Trades - Panel Discussion and Luncheon

The 2015 Women in Technology and Trades event was held concurrent to High School Connections Hands-On Career Exploration Day In February. High School students had the chance to come to LCC and check out a wide variety of technical programs. Two sessions were sponsored by the Women's Program. They included a presentation on Non-Traditional Careers for Women, and a panel of seven members from technology and trades fields. Attendees had ample opportunity to ask individual questions and to visit with the panelists during lunch. Lisa Bohannan, Women's Program Career and Technical Education Advisor facilitated these events.
