Women-Only Cohort Launching at Per Scholas in 2022
Starting in February 2022, Per Scholas will launch a women-only cohort in our National Capital Region campus. This will be the first women-only cohort since our start over 25 years ago and is a testament to our plans to diversify the tech industry. Per Scholas NCR Managing Director, Diane Duff, mentioned, “this training is designed with women in mind, and with the goal of understanding the barriers women face entering the industry.”
With the Women in Apprenticeship and Nontraditional Occupations grant, Per Scholas has to opportunity to offer this program to bolster women in the tech workforce. The training will be completely remote, hold 15 spots, and held from 9:30 am – 2:30 pm with additional tutoring and professional development hours available on the weekends. If you or someone you know are interested in this women-only training, applications open on November 29.
Per Scholas is excited for this opportunity to raise the percentage of women in tech from beyond 30% female. Click here to learn more about the cohort and the effect it will have on women in tech with our feature in Technical.ly DC.
