Basden discusses the challenges of overcoming gender stigma in certain career fields, the positive impact of CTE education towards expanding opportunities across gender, and celebrates ongoing collaborations between Vermont Works for Women, Burlington Technical Center and other VT CTE centers. Stay tuned for an announcement of VWW & BTC’s Career Challenge day this spring!
