#BringBAckOurGirls: A Call to Action.  Please consider joining!
 
New York City, NY -- This Tuesday, May 6th at 12pm EST, Girl Rising and Amy Poehler's Smart Girls initiative will be co-organizing a "Call to Action" Google Hangout in response to the abducted Nigerian school girls.

What's happening in Nigeria?

Tuesday marks three weeks since dozens of gunmen stormed the Government Girls Secondary School in Chibok, Nigeria and abducted more than 200 girls who were asleep in their dormitories. Even as global media coverage grows, so do the fears of the families and communities of the missing girls.

#Bringbackourgirls

With every passing day, the crisis intensifies: where are these girls and what will it take to bring them home? Mounting outrage around the world is matched by an escalating desire to do something  anything  to bring these girls to safety and their captors to justice.

Inspired by the passion of our community, Girl Rising and Smart Girls will co-host an open forum: a meeting of experts, organizers and passionate global citizens to discuss what's happening and what we can do to help.

To that end, we'll also be sharing an "action pack" of tools so anyone can raise visibility about the unfolding situation -- and help build the momentum needed to get these girls home.

Go to www.girlrising.com or www.amysmartgirls.com for more information.

Amy Poehler’s Smart Girls is a rapidly expanding online network and community movement whose aim is to help young women and the young at heart with the process of cultivating their authentic selves.

Girl Rising is a feature film and a global action campaign for girls’ education that uses the power of storytelling to spread the message that educating girls can transform societies.
This Hangout On Air is hosted by Amy Poehler's Smart Girls. The live video broadcast will begin soon.

Today two of Sisters Code's  Weekend Website Warrior Graduates are shadowing Developers at Detroit based +Chalkfly   giving the ladies "real life" experience on what it's really like to work at an ecommerce startup. They will also take over Chalkfly's Twittter Account to answer questions about their experience!  As I've always stated, if we are going to bridge the technology gap it must go beyond "traditional training..." Thanks Chalkfly for supporting for affording our participants with this life changing experience!

Story
Tagline
Globetrotting Speaker, S.T.E.M. Advocate, Technology Strategist, Founder of Sisters Code.
Introduction

I am a Globetrotting Speaker empowering women and girls in S.T.E.M. and Life  and Founder of Sisters Code.  I have had an amazing life as a Coder, Deputy Chief Information Officer, Global Diversity Executive, and CEO of a Technology Talent Acquisition and Consulting Company.

How Technology Changed My Life

After college,  I was a reluctant aspiring Mortician working at a Funeral Home (never my dream job, but it seemed interesting,) until my life literally changed overnight.  I was introduced to a technology boot camp, which taught me to code in seven different languages in 13-weeks.  In less than a year, at the age of 25 I was maintaining and developing software for the automotive and banking industry.  I was officially a “Geek” and proud of it!

I literally went from dressing the deceased (and sometimes singing at the funerals…I was pretty good) to working on some pretty exciting initiatives.  I developed and implemented the first Global Diversity and Inclusion Department in the 30-year history of a Fortune 500 Company.  As Deputy Chief Information Officer for the City of Detroit, my team and I successfully developed the City’s first e-government initiative, enabling citizens to engage government via the Internet and lead the collaboration across 10 unique agencies to support the technology and infrastructure required for Super Bowl XL, which resulted in a flawless execution, (unfortunately the Detroit Lions were not playing.)

What I’ve been up to since leaving Corporate America

After leaving Corporate America, I started a technology company which was propelled from one employee to a million dollar enterprise within a few years, where most of my “techies” were female (yes, we are out here.) Most recently I was asked to serve as speaker for Microsoft’s Global DigiGirlz Programs and Camps, encouraging young girls to believe in themselves and explore the field of technology.  As a S.T.E.M. and Technology Strategist I partner with organizations to develop, manage, and support their internal and external outreach initiatives around S.T.E.M., Diversity, and empowerment for women and girls.

Awakening the Mature Geek

I want other women to experience the “awesomeness” that a career in technology had afforded me.  I am living proof that regardless of your age, educational level, race, or financial status, it all starts with believing in yourself.  I  began the movement of “Awakening the Mature Geek,” by creating Sisters Code.  Sisters Code’s mission is to educate, empower, and entice women ages 25 – 85 to explore the world of coding and technology.  Simply put Sisters Code is a Social Enterprise empowering women through technology.

Just in case you haven’t had enough…

My book, workbook, and music CD, “Always Believe,”came about when my daughter began having some of the same self-esteem issues I experienced when I was younger. Immediately, I knew that the only way for my daughter to accept herself would be from within. I am passionate about speaking with young girls and motivating them to love and believe in themselves, and to embrace their uniqueness.
