Be The Change: Raising a Digital Citizen
August 17, 2015
Tech Girls Rock!
Tech Girls Rock! Through the coordinated efforts of CA Technologies and Boys and Girls Club of America, young girls of elementary and early high school ages, are getting real world exposure to the exciting and rewarding arena of high technology. Academic and practical workshops give real world, hands-on experience to girls who might not otherwise have the opportunity to see just how rewarding a career in technology can be. In fact, in a study conducted by Penn Schoen Berland, 63-percent of young girls have never even considered a career in high technology. The workshops hope to change that. Since 2005, CA Technologies has contributed in excess of $10-million in monetary and software funding. With workshops occurring nationwide on a continuing basis, the recent April 2015 workshop held at the Boys and Girls Club of Raleigh, North Carolina will be featured in The Balancing Act’s special series called “Be the Change”.
Cats, the record-breaking musical spectacular by Andrew Lloyd Webber that has captivated audiences in over 30 countries and 15 languages, is now on tour across North America!
From Broadway to cooking and health, stay tuned for another jam-packed episode of The Balancing Act.
Last month, we sat down with Laura Kronen, who shared her experience with managing diabetes. She's back to give us an update on life with Eversense.
