Some 3,000 girls from across the state participated in Ohioâ€™s We Are It Day program, designed to increase middle and high school girls’ interest in traditionally male-dominated careers. Those include information technology and other science, technology, engineering and mathematics fields.
Virginia Shank of the Warren, Ohio Tribune Chronicle reported that The Ohio Department of Education, Office of Career-Technical Education, sponsors the activity in collaboration with the Ohio IT Business Advisory Network, with 17 sites across the state participating. The program is supported through funds from the Federal Carl D. PerkinsÂ Career and Technical Education Act of 2006.
