“MINNEAPOLIS (Sept. 18, 2013) – Despite holding six in 10 American jobs, women held just 25 percent of computing occupations in 2011. And of the 1.4 million expected openings for computer specialists in 2020, the current number of American graduates can fill only 30 percent.
To help bridge this gender and talent gap, and recognize young women in high school interested in technology, Advance IT Minnesota announces the second annual “Minnesota Aspirations for Women in Computing” awards. Advance IT Minnesota is seeking young women in high school across the state with outstanding achievements and aspirations in technology to apply for the awards program online at www.advanceitmn.org/aspirations-award from Sept.18 through Oct. 31, 2013.”
