In partnership with Red River College, Microsoft Canada will be hosting its 6th year DigiGirlz Day in Winnipeg. DigiGirlz aims to open the worlds of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) to young women by showing them how accessible STEM fields are, and how far they can go with them in the future. It is a global program of 50+ multi-day and one-day camps held in multiple countries around the world. This is an exciting opportunity for high school girls to learn about careers in technology, talk with Microsoft employees about their life experiences and enjoy hands-on computer and technology workshops.
