“Step Up” program gives women a career path into manufacturing


Graduates of the Robert C. Byrd Institute’s “Step Up for Women: Advanced Manufacturing Pre-Apprenticeship Program” were honored at the school’s Bridgeport campus, Friday.

Seven women took part in the 10-week course that offers hands-on training to women interested in manufacturing careers.

The course can set graduates on the path to becoming machinists, or into other jobs related to manufacturing.

“Step Up for Women” is a tuition-free program, and the first of its kind in the nation.
