Hundreds of women in Yakima get a look at technology jobs available at the Women in Technology Day, at Perry Technical Institute.

The annual event features presentations by several female graduates of the school who have gone on to have successful careers in their fields.

One graduate says she hopes to inspire more women to enter the technical workforce.

"I think it's important for women to at least take tours of the program at Perry Tech," said Savannah Jones, "I believe that male dominated industries really could use females. Women are just as good as men in any of those fields."

According to the U.S. Department of Labor, less than 10 percent of the technical workforce is female.
