Comcast's (Nasdaq: CMCSA) New England division is stepping up efforts to recruit women to take jobs at the company as field technicians.

Comcast employs just three female field technicians in New England, while it counts more than 500 men in field technician positions, Rachel Jolly, director of women's programs at Vermont Works, told the Rutland Herald.
