Students will have the opportunity to attend sessions on computer repair, computer assisted design software, online security and a variety of other technology based topics.

Digital Diva Chairperson Susan Gregory says they started doing the conference four years ago to encourage women to go into non-traditional jobs.

"Hopefully it then inspires them to pursue a technology degree," Gregory says, "and pursue a career in technology."  

Gregory says the conference has helped hundreds of girls expand their interests and go into computer-related careers.

Digital Diva Chairperson Susan Gregory says the conference really helps girls expand their interests and see what careers are available.
