As a woman-owned business, SoNoted, LLC, supports the University of Maryland Baltimore
County Center for Women and Information Technology's (UMBC/CWIT) promotion of young
women engaging in careers in technology.Over the past twenty years, the student
population in Computer Science departments has become increasingly male, and the
number of women among faculty members has remained quite small.” (O’Leary,
1999)In light of this decline, The Center has made a strategic commitment to develop
means and methodologies to encourage high-tech careers targeting young women ages
12-20. One milestone toward the vision involves the creation of a high-energy video
highlighting exciting opportunities for women in computer sciences and technology
services. This video will provide a multi-sensory backdrop to motivational speakers
encouraging careers in IT. The video may be used in academic and career growth environments.
Upon completion, the video and program will be evaluated by an independent organization.
Visitors to www.SoNoted.com can participate
in the success of this venture by identifying organizations with existing video
presentations that can be used as a component of the final production. The 4-minute
video montage will be created by Oscar-winning Video Press. Contact Claudia Morrell,
