Microsoft has a big focus on employment diversity, including women in IT. To achieve this, we need to encourage school girls that technology is cool. Microsoft has started a program called digigirlz in the US which includes an online course that I think is applicable in New Zealand.

If you are reading this blog and are a teacher, or in a parent with children at school, I would encourage you to review the course and consider supporting it by either facilitating the delivery of it or at least raising the awareness of it with the school.
