UCN's IT program for Indigenous women receives major funding to continue another year

University College of the North’s IT training program for Indigenous women has received over $1 million to continue through the upcoming academic year.

 

The Future Skills Centre’s investment into UCN’s Information Technology Readiness North program, also known as InTeRN, is a research-based pilot project that aims to address gaps and barriers preventing northern women from entering IT jobs.

 

The program launched last September, and since then more than 20 Indigenous women have been involved in introductory IT entry training. Seven participants would then proceed into the full-time InTeRN program.
