Supporting Young Women in Technology
The Association for Women in Computing (AWC) is celebrating 25 years of success! AWC is re-dedicating
itself to the encouragement of women in technology fields by supporting a grass-roots level outreach
program with Girl Scout troops and councils. The Boston chapter of AWC will be holding a fall event
with young women in the Girl Scouts to discuss careers in technology, play games to encourage technology
exploration, and help them earn their technology badges. Encouraging girls in this age-group is critical
to counteract the alarming drop in interest in computers, science, and math currently being experienced
in middle schools and high schools. We hope this event will result in more women achieving successful
careers in all areas, given the increasing importance of technology in general and computers in particular
for the future.
Please join us on May 20, 2004 for an event planning session. We will discuss the agenda and how we can
better prepare these young women for a future career in technology.
AWC Boston would like to extend a special Thank You to Monster.com for co-sponsoring this event with us.
