Build Your Future with Home Evolution

Scholarship Award - $1,000.00

This is a scholarship program for young women in our community pursuing a career in a male dominated industry.

"There is no Force More powerful than a woman determined to rise"

Women have historically been underrepresented in male-dominated careers.The gender wage gap persists to this day, and the lack of support for women in these fields has been a major contributor to this discrepancy. In order to gain a better understanding of the history behind the statistics of women in male-dominated careers, it is important to look at the historical context in which this issue first developed. Throughout the 19th and early 20th century, women were largely excluded from these careers, with the exception of a few limited and low-paying options.This was largely due to societal and cultural norms that discouraged women from pursuing traditionally male-dominated fields. Additionally, women were often barred from access to higher education and the necessary training for these positions. This exclusion prevented them from accessing the same opportunities that were available to men, and further perpetuated the gender wage gap. Despite the progress that has been made in recent decades, there is still a long way to go to ensure that women are represented more equally in male-dominated fields.
