July 19 Women In Tech


I have started volunteering with an amazing group of young women who have started a start-up organization for women in tech.  They started out in Vancouver and now reach out to 7 cities in Canada and the US.  Although I am not in technology they have welcomed me as a volunteer as they are an all volunteer organization.  They are all very young and enthusiastic and it is inspiring to see women of the next generation evolving.  One of the most interesting young ladies was from Belize via New Orleans and another young lady was a Korean brought up in Russia.  I went to one of their meetings last night. There was a speaker who described her challenges as a women in the field of technology but it sounded just like the challenges women of my generation experienced in the world of work.  I don’t think these young women know how good they have got it.  They need to do have a dose of Mad Men.    They are a non-profit and welcome donations.

This week I have updated the page on this site about computers and the internet.  It is just a guide for people new to the internet.
