I’m very excited to announce the launch of the Day of the “Tech” Girl website. It is a resource for folks interested in hosting and participating in tech-related activities and events on October 11, the first ever International Day of the Girl. I also see it as a resource for collecting, sharing and collaborating on gender equity issues in computing throughout the year. There are many collaborators and supporters to thank and many can be found on the about page.
Someone asked me why I started using the quotes around the word tech and it is because I don’t want to take away from the original Day of the Girl. ”Tech” is just one of many facets we girls embrace. Please check out the website and join the collaboration - there are lots of ways to get involved!
