The event will include information booths from programs in the Business, Public Safety, and Technology divisions.

STC Information Technology Program instructor and event organizer Angelita Teniente says events like this are crucial for women who are interested in pursuing non-traditional fields. From 5-8 p.m. attendees can learn about both non-traditional classes at STC and career options.
“The event is extremely important for spreading the word about the opportunities and possible careers available for everyone, including women,” said Teniente. “Careers in automotive, welding, information technology, and manufacturing just to name a few. The event is also a celebration that not only provides information regarding career opportunities for women, but also honors women in the community who represent some of our programs.”
