    The # 1 secret to increasing the number of women in your classes
  • The top three recruitment strategies-according to the women themselves
  • Why just changing your thinking isn't enough, and what you can do about it
  • The critical thing women want to hear up front that will keep them engaged throughout your course
  • Three simple techniques you can implement tomorrow so your female students will excel in the lab

Learn about one community college program in which female enrollment has risen from 18 percent to 33 percent. Initially, less than 65 percent of the female students completed the computer program. Using the IWITTS system, they turned those results around so now more than 85 percent of female students complete their classes.

Milgram is the Executive Director of the National Institute for Women in Trades, Technology and Science. She has conducted national and state trainings and workshops in 44 states. She is the Principal Investigator of the CalWomenTech Project, highlighted by the National Science Foundation in 2009 for boosting recruitment and retention rates of women in community college technology programs.
