Pittsburgh Technical College has one it partner for its new women in steam program and.. it's us!
Apogee IT Services is excited to be the IT sponsor of the new Women in STEAM outreach program at Pittsburgh Technical College (PTC). PTC’s Women in STEAM is a student-led organization dedicated to empowering and engaging young women into higher level learning to prepare them for their future careers in science, technology, engineering, art, and math fields. Women in STEAM is designed to guide young women in recognizing the important roles they will have as future leaders in Technology. The program also works to create a sense of community through peer to peer activities that promote innovation and collaboration between academic programs by sharing their experiences and providing support to one another.
Pittsburgh Technical College will kick off the program with a “Fall into STEAM” Night on Wednesday, November 7, 2018, from 6:30 – 8:30 pm. This event will introduce young women in middle in high school to career pathways in Surgical Technology, Nursing, Computer Aided Drafting, Pre-Engineering, Information Technology and more. Apogee IT Services is the proud IT sponsor of this event and the many more to come.
“The Women in STEAM realizes the importance of STEAM in education and better preparing students for the industry,” - Apogee CEO, Paul Cronin
“I am enthused to be a sponsor of this program as it shares the same values as many other outreach communities that Apogee supports like CompTIA’s Advancing Women in Technology (AWIT) community and Creating IT Futures. Programs like these are paramount for the success of the country as they work to reduce the skills gap and encourage more women to pursue fields where they are currently underrepresented. Today’s students are tomorrow’s future leaders and the Women in STEAM is better preparing them for the growing needs of the country. It is by supporting programs like this that we here at Apogee can become a better citizen in the community and industry.”
