March 8th is International Women’s Day and a great time to reflect on Women’s participation in Technology. There is a lot more that needs to be done to narrow the gender gap in technology fields and we are so happy that our Fox Valley Girls Coding Club is one organization that is working towards that goal.
If you are an organization looking for ideas to promote International Women’s Day there are lots of great ideas available “in a box” that can be downloaded from: NCWIT. Along with event ideas, there are links to other resources, articles, statistics, and award nominations. The celebration of International Women’s Day isn’t just limited to March 8th; any day this week would be a great day to promote it!
