"This class and the supporting materials really brought home for me the
importance of this issue and gave very real, practical, easy-to-use options
and solutions to the hurdles one encounters in educating and inspiring
young women to pursue meaningful careers. We've incorporated the training
in our School-to-Career staff development classes and feel it is an
essential piece of the entire effort."
-Debra Schluter
School-to-Career Coordinator

"The Futures video should be seen by ALL high school teachers."
-Don Viles

"The IWITTS materials are powerful tools for teachers and counselors
working to attract girls to technology and science careers."
