Where I live, Microsoft employs a lot of people. Yes, they're a huge corporate giant, but they do a lot for our community --- like DigiGirlz High Tech Camp.
From their press release:
Seventy-eight teenage girls arrived on campus this morning as the 2008 Microsoft DigiGirlz High Tech Camp got underway. The girls hail from 9 different states, including California, Colorado, Kansas, Maryland, Missouri and Mississippi.
This signature program works to dispel stereotypes of the high-tech industry by giving young women the chance to experience firsthand what it is like to develop and work with cutting-edge technology. Perhaps the most noteworthy project they will undertake during this year's camp is one of collaboration. Attendees have been divided into teams and are collaborating via webcam and LIVE Meeting with girls attending a DigiGirlz camp in Stockholm, Sweden. Together they will create a LIVE space, utilizing their diverse backgrounds and sometimes similar experiences to make their project compelling.
