GirlTECH

Grand Traverse area girls can learn how to make strides in non-traditional careers at the thirteenth annual GirlTECH Wednesday, Nov. 13 at NMC’s Great Lakes Campus, between 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. More than 200 girls are expected to attend. Interested female tenth grade students are encouraged to register now by contacting their high school counselors before Oct. 30.

GirlTECH was developed to encourage high school girls enrolled in any Traverse Bay Area Intermediate School District school to consider non-traditional careers, defined as those careers in which women comprise 25 percent or less of the workforce.

Students will listen to several speakers discuss their career paths and have the chance to meet local women working in non-traditional fields. Current non-traditional students from NMC and the TBA Career-Tech Center will present students with information about local training programs for high school junior and seniors and NMC programs.

For more information, contact Elizabeth Stevens at (231) 995-2400. Event sponsors include NMC, the American Association of University Women, Traverse Bay Area Career-Tech Center, Benzie Area Zonta Club and the Zonta Club of Leelanau County.
