Digi Girlz Camp was recently recognized in the August Charlotte Campus Newsletter for introducing girls into the world of technology.  Since inception in 2000, the program has enjoyed tremendous success encouraging girls to learn about technology and been quite effective in dispelling many stereotypes of the high-tech industry, one being that it’s just for men.  

Congratulations are extended to our 5 national leaders who received "Girl Power" awards for their impact driving STEM (Science, Technology, Education and Math) as follows: 

  • Senator Kay Hagan, (D-NC)
  • Dr. June Atkinson, North Carolina State Superintendent, Department of Public Instruction
  • Janet Manzullo, Vice President of Talent Acquisition, Time Warner Cable
  • Marilyn Richards, Area Development Director, United Negro College Fund (UNCF)
  • Marlena Werder, Vice President, Commercial Technical Support, Microsoft

Very special thanks to Stafford Mays, Global Diversity PR Manager; Keami Lewis, Global Diversity Outreach Manager; Catherine Collins, East Region, PR Manager; LeVay Penny, Staffing Consultant SMSG Services; Phallan Davis, The Caraway Group, and Katie Trautmann, Airfoil PR.  Thanks are also extended to the strategic engagement of Matt Gelman, Sr. Director Congressional Government Affairs, David Pryor, Federal Government Affairs Director; and Terrance Herron, State & Local Government Affairs Director who secured Senator Hagan and Councilman Mitchell; in addition to the Digi Girlz Charlotte Planning Team!
