PROVIDENCE, R.I. – Governor Gina M. Raimondo visited Tyco’s Women in Technology (WIT) program at its Cranston facility and spoke to participating high school students interested in STEM careers hard at work on engineering projects. This is the first year the company has run the WIT program in Rhode Island.
«The WIT program at Tyco harnesses the raw talent of Rhode Island students and helps them build the skills that matter so they can compete for jobs that pay,» Raimondo said. «The projects these young women are working on give them real hands-on experience where they gain leadership skills and support from mentors in STEM fields.»
Governor Raimondo met with program participants including students from Pilgrim High School in Warwick, St. Mary Academy-Bay View in Riverside and LaSalle Academy in Providence.
