Standard 6: Societal Context
b. Advocates for the welfare of all members of the learning community.
Upon request, I wrote a blog post for the Principal Financial Group Women's IT blog with the focus on the question: Why do you think fewer girls and women are pursuing careers in technology? I advocated for the awareness of micro inequities that contribute to the current demographic divide of gender in information technology (IT) related career fields as well as the self-fulfilling element. I continued addressing the issue by sharing what Summit Middle School is doing to help reverse this trend.
