UTC Aerospace Systems employee, Agnes Chau Klucha, technology manager, Central Engineering in Windsor Locks, participated in the first "Making it Real" Summit at the Connecticut Convention Center in May.
The Summit invited middle and high school girls to hear from women leaders and practitioners about manufacturing careers and the skills needed to be successful.
Klucha participated on a panel designed to educate students and teachers about careers and opportunities in manufacturing related to STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) offering guidance for the 21st century skilled STEM workforce. STEM is one of UTC Aerospace Systems' main focus areas.
"The Girls & Manufacturing Summit was a success and it provided an opportunity to engage with students to encourage them to enter STEM and manufacturing fields," said Klucha.
