Women make up nearly half of the United States workforce, according to Pew Research. However, they still remain highly underrepresented in the skilled trade industry. A recent ‘Women in the Workplace’ study found that 40 percent of women in technical roles are the only women in the room at work. A lack of female role models, misconceptions of what it is like to work in a technical field and narrowly targeted recruitment efforts all contribute to the underrepresentation of women in technical careers.

While the percentage of women in the United States labor force has gradually climbed over the past decades, it is still significantly lower in the tech sector.
WIT is at the forefront of bridging this gender gap. We are committed to guide and mentor our participants to grow in their career by offering playbook skills and training women how to level up their careers and lives.
