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 email@example.com.
