Inbar Lasser-Raab, a featured speaker for the 2016 IWF World Cornerstone Conference in Tel Aviv, published a post this week on Cisco Blogs titled, “For Women in Tech, Anything is Possible” discussing what we can do to drive significant change to ensure that young women are able to grow technology careers.
“We must find ways to consistently promote technology-oriented books, toys, and discussions with girls at a very young age. If we wait until they are teenagers, it may be too late. Adults start asking children as young as two years old what they want to be when they grow up. We will have missed a big opportunity to shape their opinions about what type of career is achievable if we don’t talk and expose them to technology at a very young age. We need to make it natural and obvious to them.” – Inbar Lasser-Raab (Source: Cisco Blogs)
