Gabby McCutchen, Dean and Department Head of Student Engagement and Transitions at Durham Tech, was invited to participate in a powerful video by the Triangle Community Foundation about gender inequality.
“The Foundation is an important community partner who manages some scholarships for Durham Tech students,” McCutchen said. “When they invited me to participate in a convening focused on women, I was honored to represent the successes of ever increasing numbers of female college graduates.”
The video debuted at the Triangle Community Foundation’s “What Matters: Women” conference at the Raleigh Convention Center on April 24. Nearly 800 community leaders gathered to learn more about how women are disproportionately affected as it relates to health, housing, employment, and education.
The video features women in the community sharing data about what women face in the Triangle every day.
“I know from my research and lived experience as a first generation college graduate that higher education is the key to increasing our earning potential,” McCutchen said.
