Proposal summary

Purpose & objective

Technology remains a heavily male-dominated area, even after decades of extensive efforts to promote female participation. But women can and should have more recognition and representativeness. In this session participants will learn how they can empower our female teachers and students to develop their talents and abilities, nurture a passion for STEM, and to innovate as agents of change in our technological world.

The session will focus how to establish clubs, create classroom learning environments, and host Women in Technology (WIT) events for teachers and students to promote learning, fun, and a passion for technology and computer science to help advance women in technology -- from the classroom to the boardroom.

Participants will leave will multiple resources to launch their own event and receive student activities and lessons for female students in technology such as coding, robotics, art, music, media, graphic design, engineering and more!
