Women earn 57 percent of all undergraduate degrees, but only 18 percent of all undergraduate computer and information sciences degrees. And in a professional workforce that’s 57 percent female, only 26 percent of computing occupations are held by women.
Working together, we can begin to change these numbers to fill the demand for a talented, diverse technology work force in Kansas City. We can raise awareness, connect girls with mentors and with each other. We can smash misperceptions about the field. We can showcase the opportunities. And we can share our findings with each other to keep us all moving forward.
Please join us for light refreshments as we unveil plans for building awareness, making connections and getting girls hands-on with tech.
