Sask Polytech receives $1M investment to support WITT program


Saskatchewan Polytechnic will be receiving $1M over ten years from Orano Canada to support and expand the polytechnic’s Women in Trades and Technology (WITT) program. WITT will use the funding to expand its mentorship programming, workshops, and training sessions and create additional training opportunities in rural and northern communities. The funding will also be used for an annual scholarship for a woman studying in one of Sask Polytechnic’s trades or technical programs. “Our goal is to inspire and encourage the next generation of women and girls to consider trades careers, overcome limitation barriers and ultimately bridge the employment gap between men and women in these sectors,” said Sask Polytech President Dr Larry Rosia.
