Women’s Equality Day - August 26

Women's Equality Day is a day proclaimed each year by the United States President to commemorate the granting of the vote to women throughout the country. Women in the United States were granted the right to vote on August 26, 1920, when the 19th Amendment to the United States Constitution was certified as law. The amendment was first introduced many years earlier in 1878. Every president has published a proclamation for Women's Equality Day since 1972, the year after legislation was first introduced in Congress by Bella Abzug. This resolution was passed in 1971 designating August 26 of each year as Women's Equality Day. - Wikipedia



Non-Traditional Fields

Non-Traditional Fields - The term 'non-traditional fields' means occupations or fields of work, including careers in computer science, technology, and other current and emerging high skill occupations, for which individuals from one gender comprise less than 25 percent of the individuals from one gender comprises less than 25 percent of the individuals employed in each occupation or field of work. - Carl Perkins Career and Technical Education Act of 2006

This blog has covered a variety of topics and those topics continue to expand as my experiences change. Recently to those experiences I have added the opportunity to be involved in the promotion of non-traditional fields in career and technical education as defined by the Carl Perkins legislation.

As such I am adding a new label, Non-Traditional Fields, and will start providing resources, thoughts and sharing opportunities under this new area. I hope that some of them you will find useful.

In addition to these postings we now have made available a new page on our website where some of the resources will be shared as well.

Firing up the blog!

Well, it looks like it has been awhile since I have blogged and I am way behind. I apologize for not keeping up with this and want to reconnect with those that viewed what I posted over the last 8 1/2 years.

So starting with the new fiscal year (that was July 1 in case you were wondering) I am making a commitment to sharing and blogging with you. Just like always the blog will center around what we are doing at CareerTech to further career and technical education in the state, random ideas and other things.

Thanks for following along and I look forward to sharing with you again!
