Arizona workshop encourages girls toward tech careers
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- The Boys and Girls Club of Greater Scottsdale teamed up with CA Technologies and hosted Tech Girls Rock, a series of workshops aimed at getting girls involved in information technology or other tech-related industries.
The U.S. Department of Labor's Bureau of Labor Statistics reported women make up 58 percent of the U.S. Professional workforce, but only 25 percent of the computing workforce.
"It's a male-dominated industry and I think it would be good for girls to get involved in that," said Jessica Dubois, a teen volunteer with the Boys and Girls Club.
CA Technologies employees donated their time to serve as role models for more than 100 preteen and teen girls Wednesday in Scottsdale.
