WOMEN TECHNOLOGY WILL BE FOCUS OF TALK

Women and technology will be the focus of an upcoming talk by Aliza Sherman, founder of the "Cybergrrl" Web site and the WebGrrls national organization.

The talk, "No Girls Allowed: Changing the Gender Landscape of the Internet," starts at 4 p.m. Feb. 16 at the University at Buffalo Center for the Arts.

The number of women using the Internet is growing, but information technology remains largely a male preserve, as universities struggle to recruit female computer science students.

The public is invited to the talk, which is preceded by an informal reception.

Sherman will also participate in a dinner talk beginning 5:15 p.m. Feb. 15 at the UB Center for Tomorrow with Judy Feldman, chief technology officer of Remarketing Services of America in Amherst. Cost of the dinner talk is $15 or $10 for students, members of WNY WebGrrls or members of Infotech Niagara. Participants may pay at the door but must reserve by Monday by calling Julie Giles at 433-2260, or e-mailing rsvp@infotechniagara.org.
