Scholarships encourage young women to consider tech careers

Prosper Portland joined nine local TechTown companies (Cloudability, AWS Elemental, Instrument, Cozy, Puppet, New Relic, Learning.com, eROI and Treehouse) to sponsor 60-plus scholarships for high school girls to attend the Advancing Careers of Technical Women (ACT-W) conference held in Portland July 20-21 at Portland State University.

The scholarships provided free access to the conference, a special lunchtime session with the sponsoring companies, and a panel discussion featuring women employees from Puppet, Cloudability, Cozy, Learning.com and Zapproved discussing tech career opportunities, how they’ve overcome barriers, and career advancement advice.
