Microsoft Helps Girls Become Geeks

Microsoft is increasing their “diversity” campaign to include high school girls, with the new DigiGirlz program. While I’m never too fond on the whole “diversity” thing, getting girls into the IT and programming arena makes sense. I know a lot of women that enjoy video games, and a lot that do artsy web programming, but very little that go much further than that. Good things come from getting a different perspective on things. The one thing I don’t like about it: Barbie is helping to sell this…. To high schoolers.

Experience a new world of fun by exploring our on-line DigiGirlz courses! These classes have been developed with you in mind and will expose you to some of the content that is taught during our DigiGirlz program. Have fun and show your friends and family how creative and innovative you can be.
