We’ve got a thing for information technology!

It’s smart, fun, and totally crush-worthy. IT touches every aspect of our lives: social networks, smart phones, web design, robotics, healthcare, game development, you name it. With the right skills, IT can take your career anywhere you want to go.

The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts that IT will be one of the fastest-growing job sectors, adding nearly 1.4 million jobs by 2020. However, nearly two-thirds of these jobs could go unfilled because there are not enough college graduates with computing-related degrees.

We need girls more than ever to help fill this shortage and close the gender gap.

I liked the topics that were covered, timely and great information was shared that could be taken back and shared with others on staff. It was real and concrete. I loved watching my student gain confidence through this experience. She has always been very bright, but watching her start to talk to others….she was no longer trying to be invisible but being more of a leader in her class was/is awesome.
