Here's a sneak peak of what Hillary will be presenting:
Girls Who Code reports that 74 percent of young girls express an interest in Computer Science and STEM fields. Yet, only 18% of undergraduate computer science degrees are earned by women. Less than 26% of computing jobs are held by women. Women need tech jobs. The number of jobs in technology continues to increase and tech jobs continue to pay above average salaries. The tech industry needs women. Diverse groups produce more and more creative solutions to problems. In this presentation we'll discuss how women in tech can help address this problem for future generations here in our own community.
Bring your co-workers and friends! See you there!
