CompuGirls Hawaii Fall 2020 Program
CompuGirls Hawaii, a program focused on increasing opportunities for girls of color in the fields of Science and Technology, concluded this inaugural Fall 2020 program this past Saturday, Nov. 21. The Fall cohort, comprising of 49 Hawaii high school girls, was recognized for their achievements during a virtual ceremony by STEM Ambassador Toni Kaui; Noelani Kalipi, president of Kalipi Enterprises; and Dr. Kimberly Scott, executive director of Arizona State University’s Center for Gender Equity in Science and Technology. MG Suzanne Vares-Lum, mobilization assistant to the commander of U.S. Indo-Pacific Command, was the featured guest speaker and shared her experiences in cybersecurity and offered invaluable advice for the girls as they begin to look into colleges and career paths.
As their final project, the girls created public service announcements (PSA) to raise awareness of cybersecurity in their community and were presented this past Saturday. We’re proud to share with you, the following PSA “How To Deal With Phishing“.
