The Female Governors' Summit Aims To Get More Girls Into Tech

The first Female Governor's Summit is going to, among other things, focus on getting more girls interested in careers in technology.

"I am thrilled to welcome leaders from across the country to work together on a critical issue that will affect an entire generation of young girls," said Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg said in a statement. "Women remain dramatically underrepresented in technology fields. They're missing out on opportunities and the world is missing out on their ideas. We need to harness the full talents of our population and this summit is proof that our female governors are committed to addressing and closing the gap."
