Roueche Center Forum: Toward Gender Equality in Technology Careers
COVID-19 has demonstrated that technology is a bridge to sustaining a degree of normalcy in our lives. Institutions were able to switch almost overnight to online instruction and services only because of advances in technology, showing how critical having prepared professionals to address world problems is. According to the 2021 study “Women Chief Technology Officers in Community Colleges” by Monica D. Wiggins, the prevalence of technology today requires skilled technology workers — more than ever before — to secure, design, maintain and upgrade an ever-increasing number of advanced technological devices and programs.

Community Colleges Do Heavy Lifting in STEM and Innovation
When people talk about innovation and moving the country forward, two-year institutions are often not part of the conversation. In fact, community colleges have for years borne the stigma of being last-choice institutions for students who either weren’t ready for four-year institutions or who needed to reskill to stay relevant in the workforce. But these institutions are also becoming increasingly a first-choice option, both for students coming right out of high school, and those who have been out for some time — and in many cases, for students who are still enrolled in high school, thanks to the growing popularity of dual-enrollment programs. Much of the emphasis in community college is and has always been around helping to prepare students for jobs. But from Texas to Maryland and around the country, more and more of those jobs are in STEM fields.

Online Instruction Did Not Make Things Easier for Disabled Students

When COVID-19 pushed the world of higher education online, some students, including those who work, may have found online access an easier way to put educational goals first, especially when the economy was cliff-diving and taking jobs with it. One commonly held belief is that fully online instruction increased accessibility for disabled students. But Krista Soria, the assistant director for research institutes in partnership with the Student Experience in the Research University (SERU), said that the numbers show the opposite is true.
