Why Encourage Girls?
Technology, our ability to understand it and use it, is an important tool for anyone to compete for jobs in our increasingly global business economy. As most of us know all too well, women are significantly underrepresented in the field of technology based on the data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics compared to males in the same field. Our plan is to offer tools that encourage girls to pursue technology and change these numbers!
What do I do to the downloaded package?
Unzip the files using your preferred zip tool. The files can then be manipulated at will. For example, double click a document, when the document opens, just save it with a different name and .doc extension. Modify anything that needs changing, re-save it, and you will be ready to print your document. The flyer and brochure can print on any printer. If you need a banner, you may need to use a different printer like those found at business printing stores.

The email you will receive after you request your digital template will contain a link to down the package, click on that link, and save the zipped files on your computer.
