RV Technical Institute Champions Gender Diversity with Final 2023 All-Women’s Classes of the Year in Camp Hill, PA

The RV Technical Institute (RVTI), in a commendable initiative, recently concluded its sixth and final all-women’s RV technician training class for the year in Camp Hill, PA. 

This endeavor, a collaboration with the RV Women’s Alliance (RVWA) and the Pennsylvania RV and Campground Association (PRVCA), signifies a step forward in promoting gender diversity in the RV industry.

The event garnered attention, being spotlighted on the local 21 News channel. The feature showcased the enthusiastic participants and also highlighted Dana DelVecchio, Go RVing’s senior manager of programs and experiential events. Such media coverage underscores the broader interest and support for initiatives that champion diversity and inclusion.

The RV industry, traditionally male-dominated, is witnessing a positive shift with such programs. The all-women’s classes not only provide technical training but also foster a sense of community among participants. 

The collaboration with the RVWA and the PRVCA amplifies the impact of these classes, creating ripples in the industry, as per the News & Insights report of the RV Industry Association.

Testimonials from participants reveal the transformative nature of these classes. Beyond technical skills, many express a newfound confidence and a sense of empowerment. The presence of women instructors, mentors, and role models further enhances the learning experience, making it holistic.

Camp Hill, PA, with its rich RV culture, provides the perfect backdrop for such initiatives. The town, known for its RV parks and campgrounds, has always been a hub for RV enthusiasts. The all-women’s classes, therefore, are not just an isolated event but a part of a larger movement in the town to promote inclusivity in the RV space.
