Hello sisters and brothers!
TECHNOLOGY IS NOT JUST FOR BOYS.
Or for girls, for that matter.
But we all know women are vastly under-represented in the bloggy-netroots-data world.
SO LET'S CHANGE IT.
Our informal group - Women in Progressive Technology (or the WIPT List) is sponsoring a summer intern scholarship, and we need your help to pay for it.
We need to raise $3,600 by the end of July.
Please go here and donate:
Please donate now. The money you donate goes directly into a stipend for a young woman who will direct her time and energy into building infrastructure: building a directory of women's university groups, laying the groundwork for women-in-technology outreach, and kicking ass.
Please HELP NOW as we raise $3,600 by the end of July.
You can help by donating as much as you can.
I'm giving $100 a month for the next two months.
We can make it happen if we all participate. And it's time.
Be the mentor you wish you had. Please give at least $100.
