Empowering Men and Women in Nontraditional Fields

Gender Equity at YCCC

The Gender Equity program at YCCC is dedicated to supporting students enrolled in non-traditional fields for their gender.  
So what exactly are the non-traditional fields? They are occupations in which less than 25% of one gender is enrolled or employed.  

Here are majors at YCCC that fall into this category. Download the brochures in the fields that interests you.


If you are interested in any of these fields contact the Department Chairs.
