An Evening of Networking with Girls in Technology

By Nicole Weatherholtz

Kashmir World Foundation joined Girls in Technology (GIT) for a dynamic evening of networking and interactive discussions between girls and professional women in the science, technology, math, and engineering (STEM) fields at the Women in Military for America Memorial in Arlington, Virginia on October 6, 2016. Girls in Technology is led by a committee of Women in Technology members and offers educational and hands-on STEM programs that promote creativity and innovation, and inspire girls to pursue STEM-related careers. GIT programs reach over 500 girls in the DC metropolitan area, and help girls identify pathways to careers in STEM through engagement with women executives in STEM-related fields and STEM experiences provided by companies in Washington DC, Maryland, and Northern Virginia. Girls in Technology programs are made possible through Women in Technology, STEM for Her, and the generosity of corporate sponsorships.
