Session Synopsis

       America (and the world, for that matter) is becoming increasingly dependent on technology, yet there are hundreds of thousands of high-tech jobs that remain unfilled by American workers.  In the midst of this, American females (50.9% of the U.S. population) lose interest in technology as they progress through our school systems.  Can we really afford to continue this trend?  This session will provide a combination of statistics and suggestions for reversing this trend, encouraging females to remain interested in technology as a potential career choice.

       Your two presenters are Susan Boone and Michael Sirois.  Access information about them and the session information at the websites below, or email Michael or Susan for more details.
