Greg Deiss, top photo, and Dr. Haley Minnehan, lower photo, spoke to the Prairie Middle School sixth graders on Thursday, January 29th about how careers are affected by the issue of gender equity.  Mr. Deiss stressed that many women currently work in career fields that were considered male occupations years ago.  He pointed out that many men now work in career fields that used to be considered to be female job positions. Examples that he shared were nurses, librarians, and singers.  Dr. Minnehan told the students to aim high.  She also told the students to try to continue to do well in math and science courses throughout high school, because it will keep their career options open.  She also pointed out that working in a nontraditional career field can help women earn a higher income. Both speakers told the students to choose a career that they would enjoy!
