Forum Launched To Advance Interest In Technology Among School-Aged Girls

ALEXANDRIA, Va.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—May 30, 2006— Women in Technology (WIT), the premier organization contributing to the success of professional women in the Washington technology community, today announced that its Girls In Technology (GIT) Committee will hold a community forum to bring together the many groups in the area that are actively working to advance awareness of and interest in math, science and technology among school-aged girls. The purpose of the forum is to identify opportunities for collaboration among local organizations to meet this shared objective.

Businesses, school systems, and charitable organizations who are actively engaged in promoting math, science and technology as career options for girls, or who have a desire to assist in such programs, are encouraged to attend. Attendees are invited to share information about their groups, specifically: who they are, initiatives already in progress, and resources they have to offer. The forum will then consider ways in which to work together to meet this common goal.

The forum, which is free of charge, will be held Tuesday, June 6 from 1:30 - 4:00 p.m. at DeVry University's Tysons Corner Campus, 1751 Pinnacle Dr., Suite 250, McLean, VA 22102. Please register for this forum by contacting: Diane Houghton at Dianne.houghton@digitalfocus.com or 703.561.5951.
