Be The Change: Raising a Digital Citizen
Tech Girls Rock! Through the coordinated efforts of CA Technologies and Boys and Girls Club of America, young girls of elementary and early high school ages, are getting real world exposure to the exciting and rewarding arena of high technology. Academic and practical workshops give real world, hands-on experience to girls who might not otherwise have the opportunity to see just how rewarding a career in technology can be. In fact, in a study conducted by Penn Schoen Berland, 63-percent of young girls have never even considered a career in high technology. The workshops hope to change that. Since 2005, CA Technologies has contributed in excess of $10-million in monetary and software funding. With workshops occurring nationwide on a continuing basis, the recent April 2015 workshop held at the Boys and Girls Club of Raleigh, North Carolina will be featured in The Balancing Act’s special series called “Be the Change”.
