Your New Career
The life you want might be outside your comfort zone. With a career change, you can make a difference in the world, while earning the salary that you deserve.
Our career accelerator program focuses on fully preparing women to level up into fast-growing fields like Advanced Manufacturing, Technology, and Geospatial.

A college degree isn’t necessary; only the drive to want better for yourself and the readiness to make the leap. And you can. Because we’ll help support and guide you.
Advanced Manufacturing Pathways
Manufacturing is about making things on a large-scale using machinery and technology. It plays a vital role in almost every sector of our economy, from aerospace to biopharmaceuticals, consumer products and beyond. Careers in Advanced Manufacturing are ideal for those who like to work with their minds and their hands. If you are at ease in the mechanical world and want to apply scientific and technical principles to make life-changing products, a higher-paying job in Advanced Manufacturing may be right for you.

Geospatial is the science of location. It’s gathering and mapping data to paint a picture of something around a specific place. Any app on your phone that uses location to help you find something is using Geospatial Science. You’ll learn to analyze data related to a specific place(s) on Earth to find solutions with your team. Then, use data to make predictions and pressure test those predictions to find creative solutions to some of our greatest modern challenges — like climate change, national security, and more.
