The "Shady Ladies" of Shady Sp[ring Women's Club Hear AITES Message
On April5, 2012, members of the GFWC Shady Spring District Women's Club in Beckley, WV heard the AITES message. The presentation was conducted by AITES Trainer/Consultant Deborah Owens and included barriers that girls encounter when considering IT careers, availability of local IT job opportunities, and the role of secondary stokers. The women were inspired to become "stokers," to encourage and support girls' interest in IT careers. Each participant discussed ways they could share the AITES message with the girls in their lives. They received AITES brochures, bookmarks, pencils, placemats, and mints.
