Encouraging women to pursue IT careers remains a challenge despite the fact women are the primary users of mobile and social web applications in the U.S. But organizers of the upcoming IT Cloud Computing Conference (IC3) are trying to address the issue with an exciting program!
They’ve launched the IT Cloud Scholars program in hopes of getting more women to attend the two-day IC3 conference Oct. 27-28 in San Francisco, California. Through the IT Cloud Scholars program, women undergraduate and graduate students studying science, technology, engineering, or math can receive free registration to IC3. The offer is limited to the first 50 students who register, so register‘ now!
Not among the first 50? All female registrants, students or not, receive 50 percent off registration.
IC3 provides an excellent opportunity for women to explore cloud computing and receive training on some of the most in-demand technology in IT. According to IDC, a leading IT research/analytics firm, the IT industry needs more than 1 million IT professionals, including developers and IT managers, to learn cloud skills as more organizations transition to the cloud.
