promoting Education

Building for the future

District 4 and our clubs promote gender equality in education to further develop a pool of talented women for the future that is traditionally dominated by men. To address gaps and promote gender equality in education, our District supports three programs for women and girls pursuing education and careers in the traditionally male-dominated fields of aerospace sciences and engineering, business and business management and public affairs.  We are proud to announce a pilot Women in Technology scholarship to encourage women to pursue a leadership role in technology.

To do this many clubs offer financial awards and scholarships to enable young women the opportunity to further their pursuit of higher education.
