A new non-profit group called She Is Coding will hold a free workshop to interest girls in computer careers on International Women’s Day, March 8, at the Fleetwood-Jourdain Community Center in Evanston.
Organizer Tonya Patterson says technology is one of the fastest growing and highest paying fields, but fewer schools teach computer science than 10 years ago, and girls and minorities are severely underrepresented in the tech sector.
The event will be held from 4 to 7 p.m.
