>Each summer the AAUW hosts approximately 20 award-winning teachers from
>across the country in a week-long institute. This year as part of the
>institute, EOT-PACI is hosting the teachers at the ACCESS Center for an
>afternoon GirlTECH session where they will focus on women in technology.
>The goal will be to inform teachers of the severe underrepresentation of
>women in technology and to encourage them to teach and counsel girls
>effectively in the area of technology.
>As a part of this, we will have a virtual panel of women from the 2
>partnerships. I would like each woman to talk about her own work and
>experiences in the
>field and opportunities available to young women today, and any other
>relevant issues. ( 5 or 10 minutes if we have good representation) Then
>we'll take questions from the teachers.
>If there are any questions, don't hesitate to ask.
>Thanks again everyone, so much for your help,
