LIT – Educators

We encourage educators to utilize the resources of the Foundation to enhance the opportunities for their female students and to get involved with helping us ensure more women consider teaching technical subjects as a career

We work closely with educators of ladies in all age groups from 8 yrs old and up.  These educators benefit from existing programs that will nourish the talent that exists in their students who may otherwise not have these resources, experiences, events available to them.  We serve the Chicagoland area (including North, West, South suburbs) to bring these events to all areas and help foster the attendee-ship of girls in particular to make them a success for all who are involved.
