Since its inception in 2000, Microsoft Corporation developed the DigiGirlz Technology Program series to inspire girls to explore careers in the technology field. Microsoft hopes that by introducing girls to the opportunities and career choices available to them, more college-bound young women will consider computing science and computer engineering majors and pursue degrees that will ultimately narrow the gender gap in the technology industry. Organized and run by Microsoft employee volunteers- the Microsoft DigiGirlz Programs have proven to be an invaluable tool for getting young girls excited about technology. Educating and inspiring the next generation of women IT leaders by introducing them to the considerable opportunities and career choices available to them. This event is one of Microsoft’s core efforts to invest in STEM (Science Technology, Engineering and Math) education for women and build a pipeline of future workers ready for the challenges of the global economy.
