Jann Mirchandani, owner of Westchester based website design firm, Westchester Marketing Café, recently participated in a free DigiGirlz Event hosted by the Microsoft Store located at the Westchester Mall in White Plains, a program provided by Microsoft’s YouthSpark Program.

The DigiGirlz event welcomed young women of all ages for an introduction to computer science professionals and fundamentals, to empower them to explore career paths and get a better sense of the world of opportunities that exist within the tech industry, such as coding. The event featured profiles of real-world DigiGirlz, a panel of accomplished females in computer sciences, and an hour of Minecraft Code Workshop, which demonstrates the fundamentals of coding.

DigiGirlz is a global initiative that was launched in 2000 as a part of Microsoft’s YouthSpark
