An exciting opportunity for high school girls to learn about careers in technology.
I am thrilled and honored by Microsoft’s invitation to participate as the opening keynote speaker at the 2016 Digigirlz event in Winnipeg as example of a female who is successful in the science and technology field. I look forward to kicking of the event and inspiring the girls to live their glorious potential! It’s not in some of us, it’s in all of us.
For the third year in a row, Microsoft Canada will be hosting their DigiGirlz event in Winnipeg. DigiGirlz aims to open the worlds of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math to young women by showing them how accessible STEM fields are, and how far they can go with them in the future. It is a global program of 50+ multi-day and one-day camps held in multiple countries around the world. This is an exciting opportunity for high school girls to learn about careers in technology, talk with Microsoft employees about their life experiences and enjoy hands-on computer and technology workshops.
