Here is what a teacher who attended a DigiGirlz Day had to say about her experience:
"Thank you Microsoft for hosting the DigiGirlz Day! Technology is an integral part of today's education, and, of course, today's world. Kudos to Microsoft for giving young women an opportunity to explore the many options for their futures. The DigiGirlz Day event enabled our students to realize the value of their educational experience and technology. I was very impressed with the event and even more so with Microsoft's ability to support and drive diversity in the workplace. Thank you Microsoft for giving us an opportunity to participate in this great event!"
