Did you know only 12 percent of engineers and 26% of computing professionals are women? That's a staggeringly low number, and the Digital Signage Federation (DSF) is taking steps to help.
The Geri Wolff Foundation Scholarship is granted annually to a female college student, in her junior or senior year, who is committed to choosing a career in the digital signage industry. The award is intended to help broaden employment diversity by encouraging employers to hire qualified women in a variety of IT capacities.
As an organization, the DSF has opened the Geri Wolff Foundation Scholarship for donations. Now YOU have the chance to make a difference by adding to the $2,000 scholarship awarded by the DSF.
Are you a member of the AVIXA Women's Council? It's another great female networking group in our industry, and one we're proud to work with and support.
The group's regional councils are hosting a wealth of meetings in the next few months:
Atlanta - January 17th
Houston - January 21st
Pacific Northwest - January 25th
New York - February TBD
SoCal - January 17th and February 15th
Tampa - March 15th

Hey there and welcome to the Women of Digital Signage!
We're so excited to go on this adventure with all of you. This group was created to empower females in the audiovisual industry, particularly in the digital signage sector. Our goal is to create a space for women to achieve personal growth through networking, mentoring programs, and relationship building.
