The under presence of women in technology, especially in development and management, related to social exclusion and causes intellectual, cultural and financial lose of a huge amount of the human fortune. Therefore there is an urgent mission to raise the awareness and open the technological gates to women's intelligence and technological leadership and facilitate their ability to become entrepreneurs and roll model of excellence for other women and men.

Women who have succeeded in technology deserve recognition, they are an inspiration for everyone, demonstrating what can be achieved through creativity and hard work.
I don’t know if anyone was aware of the Women Who Tech sessions that brought together talented and renowned women breaking new ground in technology who use their tech savvy skills to transform the world and inspire change. It was done online through phone and the web this week and mainly targeted women from the UK and USA.
I would be interested in knowing the outcomes. They mainly focussed on
* Launching Your Own Startup
* Women and Open Source
* Breaking Through the Digital Ceiling
* Tech Marketing in a Recession
* Social Networks and Diversity Barriers
* ROI of Social Networking
I would love to hear aobut your initiatives concerning global women and technology. Within the past three weeks, I have written several grants to foster equal learning opportunities for underserved and low income girls. From my research, I learned that most females are unserved in many global communities.
The CEO of my online school is female and so are most of the staff members. We are considered experts in our fields of education and in online teaching. I was the first principal/director of a virtural early college in North Carolina, and I teach online Masters of Education classes for a major online university. Working with that university, I meet many women who are work in all fields of technology.
I would like to be involved in a global women and technology research project. Please let me know if you have any suggestions.
I definitely want to participate. I have several suggestions and know of programs being developed now for such initiatives through the UN and Microsoft also has programs such as Digi Girlz that we conduct yearly on a global basis. One other program we are looking at is called Girl Up!
I would also be interested in participating on your panel.
