As you may know, March is Women's History Month in the United States. Through a variety of avenues, efforts are made throughout the month to highlight contributions women have made - and are making - to society. This month is set aside to correspond with International Women's Day which is celebrated on March 8th. It's well known that the technology industry tends to be filled with men, so celebrating these two occasions gives Microsoft an opportunity to also celebrate the thousands of women who work with us and the millions of women who are our customers, candidates, and partners. You can also become a fan of Women at Microsoft on Facebook.
In this spirit Services/CSS is hosting two different events to help celebrate women in technology:
