BHMI Teams with UNO to Attract Young Women to IT

codecrush

BHMI is actively engaged in the University of Nebraska at Omaha’s CodeCrush initiative to encourage middle and high school girls to enter the IT world.

CodeCrush is a FREE immersion experience for 8th and 9th grade girls designed to show them the world of information technology (IT).  While the IT sector grows every day, there are too few skilled professionals to fill open positions and even fewer women. Today, very few women are pursuing academic and career opportunities in IT. In fact, last year women held only 25% of all computing-related occupations in the U.S. and only 18% of all computing and information science degrees were earned by women. That means a big part of our population is missing and not bringing their diverse perspectives to the world of IT.

The first session is scheduled from February 26 to March 1.  Only 20 spots are available and applications are due Dec. 22nd. CodeCrush will introduce these young girls to the world of IT with hands on, half–day workshops with bioinformatics, IT innovation, music technology and cybersecurity.

Students must be in 8th or 9th grade at the beginning of the 2013 school year, have parent permission and be nominated by a teacher who will also accompany them to the immersion experience. It’s free, and mentor teachers receive a $500 stipend for their time

Students and mentors will stay on campus and get to experience Omaha through the eyes of a professional IT women: checking out the IT departments of global corporations, meeting women professionals who are engaged in IT, visiting the behind-the-scenes of local attractions and even going to a Maverick hockey game. The days will be packed with dinners with IS&T students, staff and faculty, panel discussions with women in the field, as well as lunch with an IT mentor.

Registration for this immersion program is now open to 8th and 9th grade girls!

BHMI Places First in the 2013 Fight for Air Corporate Cup Race

BHMI's Winning TeamBHMI would like to congratulate employees Scott Boje, Bob Brindamour, Matt Stefan, and Kevin Walters for placing first in the Division A men’s group at the 33rd Annual Corporate Cup Run in Omaha.   

This year’s Corporate Cup on Sunday, September 15th drew thousands of runners and walkers representing corporations throughout the

Omaha area to raise funds for the American Lung Association.

The American Lung Association is the oldest voluntary health organization in the United States. Founded in 1904 to fight tuberculosis, today the ALA fights lung disease in all its forms, with special emphasis on asthma, tobacco control, and environmental health. Funds raised by the Corporate Cup help the fight against lung disease and also support more than 200,000 Nebraskans who currently suffer from lung disease!

The Corporate Cup is among the largest corporate road races in the United States, recently ranked “10th Best 10K Run” by America’s Best and Top Ten website. From the first Corporate Cup in 1981, the event has experienced phenomenal success. In that first year, 29 companies entered, and 681 runners crossed the finish line. In 2012, 262 companies entered with more than 11,000 registrants. This year, the event drew over 15,000 runners and walkers.

This year’s course presented a greater challenge to runners.  Since 1981 the race has been held in downtown Omaha and featured a relatively straight and flat course.  In contrast, this year’s new course at Aksarben Village was characterized by many turns and rolling hills.  BHMI’s team captain, Scott Boje, said they didn’t mind having to work a little harder.  With every breath, they were reminded of the people who struggle to breathe.

The champion’s trophy was presented to BHMI team members at the official Corporate Cup Awards Celebration at the Scott Conference Center on October 2nd.   

BHMI is proud of its team and the commitment of team members to do their best both on and off the job.

BHMI Joins the UNO Task Force Aimed at Funding Programs to Draw Women into IT

Woman in ITBaldwin Hackett & Meeks, Inc. (BHMI) is a member of the Women in IT Task Force that the University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO) is sponsoring.   The focus of this effort is to raise $400,000 for programs that will introduce young women to IT, with the goal of doubling the number of women in the College of Information Science & Technology in the next two years.

Nationally, women earn just 18 percent of all computer and information science degrees, according to the National Center for Education Statistics. It’s a big disparity at a time when women make up 57 percent of all undergraduate students at four-year institutions.

According to the Department of Labor, women held 26 percent of jobs in computing-related occupations in 2012, up only 1 percent from 2011.  The new fund represents a collective focus to address the local workforce issue by encouraging women to join the IT field.
