Girls Get IT programs give young women insight into technology careers

Girls and young women who love information technology sometimes have a hard time finding mentors and role models who work in the field. The local group Women In Technology (WIT) hopes to change that through its Girls Get IT programs, happening soon.

On select Saturdays this summer and fall, girls can get a behind-the-scenes tour of some of Atlanta’s leading IT companies: IBM, McKesson, Accenture and Cisco. (Ages vary for each of these tours.)

In July, girls can participate in a job shadowing program, spending time with women who work at AutoTrader.com, McKesson, SunTrust or Turner Broadcasting/CNN.

No specific deadline to apply is posted, but organizers ask that girls who are interested submit an application as soon as possible.
