Women in Science and Tech

Hey all,

I know of a regional group in Terrace that is organizing an event in Prince Rupert that encourages young women to choose careers in science and technology.

This event is to be a panel discussion between women currently invovled in science & tech sectors (positive role models) and highschool girls.

They have a few possible names for women working in the natural science sectors (marine and forestry research type thing) - but they haven’t a single name of a woman working in the IT field - with high technology.

Any ideas? I figured that if there is a woman in IT in Prince Rupert - that she is very likely posting here…maybe I am off base…

The Terrace org is Northwest Science and Innovation Society (www.nsis.ca)
