"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."

We apologize for postponing our October 2000 workshop to February 2001.
Due to launching the WomenTech Role Model E-survey we were
late getting our publicity out about the October workshop. Based on the
many calls/e-mails we received about the cancellation -- quite
a few of you were making plans to come -- we are sorry about the
inconvenience and hope we'll see you in February.
