Hello, Women in IT CGers!

It was wonderful to see so much interest in women in IT and diversity in IT at this year's EDUCAUSE. Thanks all around for great discussions.

For those of you interested in filling the workforce pipeline, here's a great way to help: you can be a reviewer for NCWIT's Award for Aspirations in Computing. See the email below, clicking the link to play along. You can also contact Gail Farnsley ( for more information.

Thanks in advance for your participation!


The National Center for Women & Information Technology (NCWIT) is once again sponsoring the Award for Aspirations in Computing.  The award honors young women at the high school level for their computing-related achievements and interests. Recipients are selected for their computing and IT aptitude, leadership ability, academic history, and plans for post-secondary education. The NCWIT Award for Aspirations in Computing offers both a national and local affiliate competitions to generate support and visibility for women's participation in communities nationwide.
They have received a record number of applications for the Award this year and as a result need reviewers for both the national and local affiliate awards.  Reviewing applications for a competition (national or local) will take from 2-4 hours to complete, so if you are looking for a way to get involved, please consider volunteering.  The review process is done online and once you register you will get instructions on how to complete the review.

You can register online at Please feel free to share this with you networks if you know of anyone else who might be interested - it's a great way to help support girls in computing!  

Thanks in advance for considering being a volunteer and supporting girls in IT!
