"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."
