New website encourages young women to consider ‘non-traditional’ careers

YFX logo 

‘Girls can do anything’ is the message from a new website which features female role models from male-dominated professions and provides information about career paths into these industries. The website was created by economic Security4Women (eS4W), a national alliance of women’s organisations.

Young women can find a wealth of information about a broad range of careers on the website, including pathways to those professions and a comprehensive list of links to relevant national and state-based organisations that provide training and/or support. The website creators are also actively seeking women willing to be included as role models on the site, particularly those working as skilled tradespersons and those in the science, technology, engineering and mathematics industries. 

For more information, go to the girls can do anything website.
