Bay College Announces Six Students Breaking Occupational Gender Gaps


Bay College is committed to closing equity gaps and improving strategies to prepare both women and men for nontraditional fields, free from gender bias. Nontraditional fields are occupations in which individuals from one gender comprise less than 25 percent of the individuals employed in the field of work.

Bay College would like to recognize the following students for their enrollment in an occupational program considered “nontraditional” for their gender. A grant received by Bay College from Perkins has awarded them with a starter kit for their occupation that will support them as they work toward reaching their educational and occupational goals.
