    REDDING, CA –  Shasta College will host its 7th annual Non-Traditional Employment for Women (N.E.W.) event on May 4th, 2018 at Shasta College from 9:00 am to 1:30 pm. This event exposes up to 240 female students each year to various non-traditional career pathways. Non-traditional occupations are occupations in which individuals from one gender compromise less than 25% of the total workforce. These students will gain hands-on experience such as operating a dozer, putting on a self-contained breathing apparatus, firing up a diesel engine or learning how to hold a welding torch. There will be many other activities related to jobs where men typically far outnumber women. A panel of professional women with experience working in these industries will present information on economic self-sufficiency and networking. These women will also provide insight and encouragement for women who have an interest in exploring these careers.

    N.E.W. was developed in collaboration with a diverse group of community stakeholders in 2012.The purpose of N.E.W. is to introduce young women to career pathways in the fields of Entrepreneurship, Fire Fighting, Emergency Medical Services, Administration of Justice, Computer Information Science, Heavy Equipment, Automotive and Diesel, Manufacturing, Welding, and Construction.

    Any interested high school students in the region should contact their counselor at their school to get registered and be a part of this fun and informative event! Check out
