HP Teaches Assembly Techniques
At a time when few women were pursuing careers in tech, and fewer electronics companies were willing to hire women for fear of turnover, HP was actively training women for careers in the industry. Here Sanborn plant employees Don Greene (left), Janett Urquhart (seated) and Fred Morris (right) are seen teaching assembly techniques to a group of women at the Cambridge Community Center. HP had begun providing free electronic production training to women almost a decade prior in 1959.
