Nontraditional careers are any in which one gender represents less than 25% of the workforce. For example, women in engineering or men in nursing. When many of these careers are high-wage, and high-demand jobs, it is imperative that we remove barriers and increase the participation and completion of women and men in nontraditional educational pathways. This workshop equips educators with tools and strategies for recruitment and retention.

In this post, we provide a free downloadable 26-page PDF with definitions and explanations of several social identities (race, gender, socioeconomic status, ability status, and sexuality) and a scaffolded exercise to help you examine your positionality.

To get started planning, two tools I like to use are the SOAR and SWOT analysis techniques.
