Activity Description 

Need to develop proposal for corporate funding. Need to identify roles for girls involved in effort. Need to identify corporate advocates now, starting with industry advisory board.

Progress On Activity 
Formed ACM-W student chapter, so we have a core group of women eager to do something.
Lessons Learned 
A lot of enthusiasm from girls right after returning from conference, but time gets away from them upon return with classes, etc. Need to find a way to work regularly.
