Girls in ICT: Count Down to April 26, 2012!
Well we are at countdown to April 26 2012 to celebrate Girls in ICT, a topic that I am extremely passionate about.
For the related United Nations Portal see: http://girlsinict.org/
Cisco has been planning events globally to host girls at the various sites in addition to providing profiles of Cisco women at some of these locations that present their engineering roles including software development, software testing, user experience design and so on.
I am really excited to be in New York on April 26, 2012 and to participate in a fantastic program and stimulating discussion with various members from the government, private industry and of course girls themselves:
I am particularly looking forward to meeting Joanne O’Riordan, who will speak on how she uses technology the limitations of Total Amelia Syndrome.
You can watch Joanne’s recent appearance on Ireland’s Late Late Show below:
Stay tuned for my blogs from the event – and most importantly, I will be interested in hearing from YOU !
