The "Mission Statement"

"Women’s representation in the computing and information technology workforce has been falling. I want to make computer science attractive for young girls and help them pursue an career within information technology.

I want to reach out to girls that normally don’t come in contact with computer science and demystify the world of engineering. I want to make young girls excited about the creative part of software development and i want them to feel the same enthusiasm we all felt the first time we created a program and saw the words “hello World” on the screen.

What can I as a symbol for a female software engineer offer in terms of knowledge? (You know that I’m not a real person - but rather a conceptual being, right?)

I Believe that the reign of the macho-code-ninja-programmers and corporate-bossy-boss-project-managers are over. Modern software engineering has a strong emphasis on working together, cooperation and self-organising teams. I am convinced that people are the most important factor in all software projects, irrespective of the approach or methodology used.

My plan is to set up weekly girls-only classes and teach young students not only programming skills, but also present a number of perspectives addressing various aspects of the interpersonal relationships and communications skills that are needed in teams.

I need your help in order to make this happen. I’m in the process of building a webbased tool for course delivery and content management. I need technology support, but more important than that, I need some strong female role models to back me up and help me spread the gospel of the beauty of programming and software engineering.
