Many high-demand jobs in the United States are difficult to fill because of a trained workforce shortage. Compounding this problem are low numbers of nontraditional CTE students. Improving outcomes relies on teachers and administrators recognizing the need for gender equity in nontraditional programs. This interactive workshop will provide participants with real-life examples of gender inequity, identify Title IX violations within CTE programs that may cause or exacerbate inequities, and explore potential solutions to achieve equity.
