THE STORY:

Julie Pippert wrote -

On Thursday, May 5 – the Thursday prior to Mother’s Day -- people across the social web will tweet to support the next generation of women technologists. You can also join us on Facebook and Twitter.

Organized by interactive firms Bonsai Interactive, RAD Campaign and Zoetica, our tweets for NextGen Tech Women will seek to raise $25,000 from the online social media and technology communities, and from matching donations from leading technology companies. The organizing committee is comprised of Allyson Kapin, Amber Mac, Danny Brown, Geoff Livingston and Julie Pippert.

Proceeds will fund the National Center for Women In Technology‘s 2011 Award for Aspirations in Computing, which recognizes young women in high-school for their computing- related achievements and interests. By generating visibility for these young women in their local communities, the NCWIT Award for Aspirations in Computing encourages their continued interest in computing, attracts the attention and support of educational and corporate institutions, and emphasizes at a personal level the importance of women’s participation in computing and IT.

Since 2007 the NCWIT Award for Aspirations in Computing has publicly recognized over 850 young women aspiring in computing. The award has drawn interest from nearly 6,000 young women that self-identify as interested in careers in computing.
