Society of Women Engineers

Founded in 1950, this organization encourages women to become engineers. It offers various conferences, awards, job listings, and a bimonthly journal.

Technical Women's Association

With the economy in free-fall, the government is looking like a more stable place of employment. With that in mind, I present this website. An employee association within the Federation Aviation Administration, TWO is "a community of government employees motivated to advance the number and opportunities of women in technical fields supporting the aviation industry."

"Plain-English computer tutorials" from a woman in Australia. Not specifically for women, by any means, this site offers tutorials, hints, and advice for computer users on various subjects, with a focus on Windows XP. A useful reference. I am bookmarking her article Sifting Misinformation and sharing it with everyone who has ever forwarded me that stupid Neiman-Marcus cookie recipe story or an emailed petition...

Formerly GirlGeeks.com, reborn as a dot-org thanks to the Bay Area Video Coalition, this organization aims to connect women with computer training classes, jobs, and community. "Even 'after the bubble', the world is a new place, and technology for communication and community-building are more important than ever. We want to ensure that women and other often-overlooked groups have the freedom, motivation and resources to participate in this new world."
