Know a high school girl that wants to be like Barbie? I mean, the newest computer engineer Barbie, of course. If so, then you should nominate her for this Aspiration in Computing Award from the National Center for Women and Information Technology (NCWIT), a wonderful organization that seeks to change the face of technology by encouraging more young women to enter and stay in the computing professions.
Massachusetts will be giving out the inaugural regional affiliate award in November to recognize young women who demonstrate talent in computing and who have the desire to pursue higher education in the field of IT.
NCWIT doesn’t stop there. They also work hard to change the climate of the workplace so young (and not so young) women would feel welcome and thrive in their chosen career. And so it should be.
Good luck!! And no, you don’t have to look like Barbie to win.
