"In the WomenTech Training, Donna Milgram explained why so few females enter the IT field and what we can do to attract them and this fundamentally changed the way we both approach
"The Bootcamp got us thinking intentionally about who we were going to target for outreach, how we were going to target them, and how we would follow up to make
sure we had actual results linked to the different programs and events that we were holding.
In a year’s time, we had increased female enrollment in our IT & CS Department from 149 to 226 female students and male enrollment had also increased from 751 to 1009 male students.
Since then, it has grown organically and blossomed into something that our college just does naturally.”

females when discussing career opportunities in IT and how we teach female students already enrolled. The WomenTech Training gave us the tools that allow us to be better equipped at increasing female enrollment as well as the ability to retain female students."
"The WomenTech Educators Training helped us think outside the box for recruitment and retention of female students. The greatest benefit was seeing almost immediate results.
~ Pamela Gibson, Dean of Engineering and Applied Technology, Fayetteville Technical Community College, NC
In the first fall semester following the training, we saw overall growth in all four targeted programs."
