To create a world where technology fully and positively serves the world's population, we must assure that women are equally involved in all aspects of technology.

The relationship between women and technology must be transformed. The number of girls pursuing math and science education must increase to parity with boys.

Women must be encouraged to choose technical studies and careers. Women who make that choice must be supported as far as their skills and interests allow.

The environment must assure that women of all backgrounds and races can bring the full richness of their experience to their own work.
