WITI - Women in Technology International

WITI to help women advance by providing access to - and support from - other professional women working in all sectors of technology. There is an extensive Resources section that will be of interest to both students and educators.

Naturally, this site projects some advocacy spaces for women's rights. However, a very important component of school reform is to create environments which are more responsive to current needs (without sacrificing foundations) of our young populations.

While many of the vendors' brochures contain nice photos of girls exploring technology, employment statistics tell a different story.

The lower the grade in which reform is initiated and at which, in this instance, young women are tantalized and brought into the mainstream, the better the chances for success.
