The annual Maine Totally Trades Conference recently held in Bangor introduces young women to male-dominated occupations and illustrates that these occupations are open to everyone regardless of gender. Through a Perkins Grant to New Ventures Maine, the Maine Department of Education’s Career and Technical Education supports the conference. You can see the conference in action here that was held in Bangor this month and another conference will be held in Presque Isle next Wednesday.
