HerWorld is designed to increase young women's awareness of their vital importance in technology-related careers. According to the American Association of University Women, technology classes, stereotypes about appropriate careers for girls, a lack of female role models and the absence of basic career information dampened girls' interest in technology-related careers. HerWorld addresses girls' perceptions of technology-related careers by introducing them to female volunteers who work in technology, an industry that is consistently dominated by men. Students and educators are exposed to an eventful day full of hands-on activities and useful information. The day begins at 9:00 am and ends at 2:00pm. Lunch is provided by DeVry University. HerWorld occurs once a year and can accommodate up to 400 participants.
Call 713-973-3068 or email email@example.com to reserve your group's space at HerWorld.
